Becci Crowe’s Journey to the Congo with Dr. Jane Goodall

Dr. Jane Goodall, the Republic of Congo, a place called Tchimpounga and orphan chimpanzees... I've just experienced it all and returned with a new understanding of the gravity of challenges to this wild place and the animals struggling to survive. As an artist active in conservation it's as important for me to be in the field as it is in my studio.
