Dr. Jane Goodall opens Sweetwaters Information Centre
There couldn’t have been a more appropriate person to open the brand new Information Centre at Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary than renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall. With a classic chimpanzee ‘pant hoot’ she cut the ribbon, opening a Centre which aims to raise awareness about the plight of chimpanzees in the wild. She was accompanied by Director General of the Kenya Wildlife Service, Mr. Kitili Mbathi.
