 Obstacles

One obstacle for her was getting money to buy a ticket to Africa. Finally, Jane made enough money, and lived her dream. I’m sure you know that there are many dangerous animals and poisonous plants in Africa. This was very tough for Jane. One time there was a leopard right outside of Jane’s tent. That would have been scary. In order for her to study chimps,  she needed to get close to them. This was a big struggle. Finally, the chimps got used to Jane. Another struggle was when Derek died from cancer. This was a horrible time for Jane.

Interesting Facts

 

Did you know that Jane first dreamed of going to Africa to study animals at age 8? Animals were so comfortable with Jane that when she was a little girl a bird flew into her room and made a nest on her bookshelf. In Africa, it was very easy for Jane to climb trees because she would climb them when she was little so she could read in peace and quiet. Jane named some chimps she was with, such as David Greybeard, Flo, Flint, Paleface, Goliath and Gilka.
