Dian Fossey

Dian Fossey loved gorillas so much, she dedicated her life to the study and preservation of them. In 1966 she went to live in the African jungle in order to get close to them, learn their behaviors and befriend them, while fighting off poachers who hunted them. She published articles to gain attention and support for gorilla conservation. In 1985, when she was 54 years old, Dian was found murdered in her jungle cabin. The mystery of her death was never fully resolved.

I hope whoever murdered her, was punished by God for the horrible deed they did to an innocent person who only wanted to teach others and show others why we should protect the gorillas.

Rest in Peace Dian Fossey, we will never forget you and your amazing work and passion to protecting gorillas.

I like Fossey, but the baby gorillas look a bit too much like Ewoks for my liking.

I thought it was Jane from Tarzan at first glance too. Great colors though! This piece is so pretty :)
