National Geographic is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2013!

I remember falling in love with animals as a kid, thanks in part to the wonderful National Geographic TV specials, Mutual of Omaha Wild Kingdom and “Daktari” weekly TV shows – all wonderful showcases for animals and nature. Not hyper violent and hyper noisy and hyper brutal the way animal shows look today. It was real back then but not sensationalized. I actually teared up when I saw the photo below. I remember watching my ย “Jane” meet and love the beautiful chimps. I met her when she was at Mechanics Hall almost 15 years ago, trying to raise money for her chimp sanctuaries, etc. Wow. What a grand life! To see more photos, click on link below photograph: – Rosalie Tirella
