Renowned environmentalist Dr. Jane Goodall, pictured above, has a full schedule in Winnipeg later this month. The world's foremost expert on chimpanzees will deliver a public lecture at Winnipeg's 2,300-seat Centennial Concert Hall on June 28, and will then unveil two new exhibits the next day: Discovering Chimpanzees - The Amazing World of Jane Goodall; and the Manitoba Museum's own companion exhibit Living on the Edge: Manitoba's Threatened Species.
Discovering Chimpanzees, a 6,000-square-foot exhibit created by Science North in Sudbury, Ont., showcases Goodall's work and lets visitors explore a recreated chimp forest and Goodall's research tent. Living on the Edge, meanwhile, examines the effects of human activity on threatened animal populations in Manitoba.
