Google runs a second concurrent Doodle today celebrating the life of Dian Fossey. Dian was once the foremost primatologist in the world and worked closely with Gorillas in Rwanda. She wrote the book Gorillas in the Mist in 1983 which combines her own personal story of living in Rwanda working with the gorillas, with her scientific research.
Dian was murdered on December 27th 1985. The case remains open but there is speculation that she was murdered due to her anti-poaching and anti-tourism agenda.
The note below is her las in her diary and beneath that is Google’s Doodle.
When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.
