I’ve met Dame Jane Goodall a few times, but it’s still hard to match up this quiet slip of a woman with her monumental identity and nearly half-century body of work. So it was a treat to be able to enjoy again in that persona of ‘Jane Goodall’ as I talked to her for last weekend’s Q and A.
A sidelight: She met with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his companion, Lu Parker, in South Africa, and said of the meeting that they both ‘expressed a desire’ to work with her Jane Goodall Institute back here in Los Angeles.
But did they perform the chimp pant-hoot with Dame Jane?
