In my hometown, Chattanooga, TN, our local zoo had only 1 chimpanzee “Hank”. As I was learning about Jane Goodall’s work and that chimpanzees are social creatures, I realized how lonely Hank seemed. I wrote a letter to Jane asking for her help. This letter turned into her coming to Chattanooga and doing several publicity appearances. I was fortunate to chaperone, help with PR and event coordination, and introduce Jane at her speaking events. We were able to inspire action and the Chattanooga Zoo received 5 new friends for Hank!
