DR JANE GOODALL, DBE, FOUNDER - THE JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE AND UN MESSENGER OF PEACE
Dr Goodall greets just about every audience in "chimpanzee" for a reason.
She perhaps more than anyone on Earth is in a position to act as ambassador from one species to another.
As a 26-year-old in 1960, she had travelled from England to Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. But with her rare degree of patience, and fortified by characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures. She managed to open a window onto their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated and remains so to this day.
Today Dr Goodall's work revolves around mobilsing action on behalf of chimpanzees, who are endangered, and all wildlife species.
Robin Spanner caused me to tell all my friends that if they ever consider going to Africa they would be crazy if they don't use Abercrombie and Kent. Robin made the experience of booking fun and easy and you have an extremely capable employee in him.
