Jane Goodall Connections

During yesterday's service, the primatologist Jane Goodall was mentioned several times, particularly her Roots and Shoots program.

Dr. Goodall is also an honorary geographer, having received the first Atlas Award from the Association of American Geographers in 2010. Vernon Domingo and I were lucky enough to be present for that award ceremony, which is viewable with her lecture on the AAG web site.

Those who wish to support her work in Gombe Reserve in a small way can purchase delicious Tanzania Gombe Reserve coffee from the shade-grown coffee farms that serve as buffer habitat to the reserve. Roasted in Vermont, this is truly exceptional coffee, both for the customer and for the planet.
