National Geographic : 1971 Oct
At home among mountain gorillas A NEW NOISE joins the forest chatter in Central Africa's Rwanda-the me tallic voice of Dian Fossey's typewriter (below), on which she transcribes field notes for her National Geographic-sup ported study of the endangered mountain gorilla (page 574). Cindy, her dog, and Kima, a pet monkey, sit by. At right, Peanuts, one of her subjects, beats his chest-a sign not of menace but of bravado and suppressed excitement. Miss Fossey reclines to show him that she, too, means no harm. Your friends can also aid such research if you propose them for membership (below). Each month the GEOGRAPHIC will remind them of your thoughtfulness. EKTACHROMES BYROBERTB. CAMPBELL© N.G.S.
