I made a oral presentation yesterday about a video of Jane Goodall: A life in the wild. Dr. Goodall had been to China several times. When she came to China on 2000, she delivered a speech at Peking University. Some friends and I listened to her to describe the her life and study with chimpanzees in the wild. The most interesting is her description of a chimpanzee family—“F family”, every member’ name initialized with F. It consist of 5 female chimps: grandmother, mother, daughter, and granddaughter. Their daily life is so similar to ours.
There is a similar research in China about panda. Professor Pan with his students observe the panda population in the wild, and hope to find out a way to keep the panda population, since pandas almost extinct. His remarkable discovery challenges our commonsense that we always think low rate of successful reproduction of pandas is the main reason that results in their almost extinction. In fact, the loss of food and habitant are the key point. He also disagreed a research on cloning panda .
