We are so proud of our National R&S Coordinator, Natasha Coutts, for her dedication and hard work in pursuing her PhD studies on chimpanzees. Natasha will be leaving for Rwanda in December, where, over 18 months, she will follow two communities of chimps to study their gut biomes and learn about their health. Her work will be important in furthering our understating of not only chimp health, but also the link with our own. Her work was recently featured in articles in the West Australian and the Sunshine Coast Daily and if you would like to support Natasha, you can contribute to her Chuffed drive.
Congratulations Tash and we all wish you the very best for safe travels and a wonderful journey. Just like Jane, you are an inspiration to us all, and we can’t wait to hear your amazing stories and of course see your gorgeous photos. From all of us at the JGIA family, huge chimp hugs and pant-hoots to you!
Help us inspire actions that connect people with animals and our shared environment.
