Spoiled Children of Divorce


Exemplary Children of Divorce – Jane Goodall

In my post on Dian Fossey I announced that Fossey was the only Child of Divorce among “Leakey’s Angel’s.” I apologise, I was wrong. Jane Goodall, who works with Chimpanzees is also a Child of Divorce. So far, I still am finding that the third angel, Birute Galdikas is not from Divorce.  But it’s beginning to look like Children of Divorce do gravitate towards strong relationships with animals and nature.

Goodall’s parents divorced after World War II when Jane was 12 years old.  She says that his gift of a stuffed monkey when she was 1 year old was the beginning of her lifelong passion of working with the Chimpanzees. After the Divorce, Jane moved with her Mother to Bournemouth. Goodall has no siblings.  She’s has been married twice. The first marriage ended in Divorce. Her second husband passed away in 1980.

Goodall has worked with the Chimpanzees in Tanzania for 45 years.  She is founded of the Jane Goodall Institute.
