New Video: Anne Pusey @ CalAcademy

On October 15, 2010, The Leakey Foundation and California Academy of Sciences partnered to bring you Dr. Anne Pusey, in celebration of 50 years of continuous study and Gombe Stream Reserve in Tanzania. In this lecture, Pusey discusses her research conducted at Gombe and shares rarely seen archival photographs, video and recent stories of the Gombe chimpanzees. The Gombe Stream Research Center was started by Jane Goodall, in 1960, when she was sent to Africa by Louis Leakey to study primates in their natural habitat. Over the past five decades, we have gained immense insight from the chimpanzee research pioneered by Goodall at Gombe, and we continue to do so today. Read more and hear audio archives about Louis Leakey, Jane Goodall and the Gombe Stream Research project here.
