"Getting to live these long full lives but they might get an infection and die from that our old age they also died from respiratory disease so that can be a big problem for them okay. I got to bring this up just because it's unavoidable. So i grew up and i saw guerrillas in the mess. I'm like this woman is an absolute hero. I got into anthropology in a little bit different story about her. And i don't know how comfortable you are talking about that. But i guess. I heard that the the criticism of her was as she probably wasn't as detached of an observer. She may be should have been. Maybe diane fossey. Jane did i say jane. Oh yeah yeah is in. The midst was sigourney. Weaver wonderful actress playing dian fossey very popular movie in my youth but i guess the the criticism was was. She was to interactive with them Which they believe lead to some desensitizing of their fear of humans which led to poachers having easier access to them. Also i think she got into some wars with poachers. She burnt down one of their camps and they retaliated by killing twelve grill. Something horrendous i would feel unethical. Did not mention that. It's a little bit of a rocky past. Yeah i think for sure. I mean diana originally went there just like jane and so the three the leaky ladies as they call them. Sometimes she was picked by louis leakey to go and study released. She had no formal scientific background. She was thirty four years old when she went. I think about this woman who just picked up her life and moved to africa to lip. She first started in congo and after six months was kicked out because of civil unrest she actually was arrested by the military and she didn't give up so she went over to the rwanda side. She's like if you seen in the movie she's like gorillas don't know country boundaries. So i'm just going to move over to rwanda and start the research center there. And i think one of diane's greatest legacies is that she did lose her impartiality which i would say jane did as well and they were kind of the first to do that to see these animals not as numbers but as individuals and as she got to know them as individuals and tell their story it changed the way people thought about gorillas so they used to be king kong ferocious beast and now they're nickname is gentle giant and so she completely changed public perception.

"The modern west is out. Now, the stories will take you to the windswept prairie were old West Ghost town once stood and a new ghost town in the making were schools and businesses are closing fast. The modern West is exploring rural decline and resilience and asking why does it matter of America's small towns disappear search for the modern West wherever you get your podcasts. Okay let's start with the obvious guerillas are massive. Big Male can be well in excess of four hundred pounds. This is Craig Shelly I mean he's like a big linebacker He's as powerful as ten men today Shali vice president at the African Wildlife. Foundation. But in nineteen seventy-three, he was in the Peace Corps working in Zaire. Now, the Democratic Republic of Congo and that is where he first got a glimpse of these mountain dwelling linebackers today. It's not all that hard to meet a guerilla. If you have a lot of money but back in nineteen seventy-three gorilla tourism wasn't a thing yet is wild animal tourism was starting to take off in other parts of Africa the mountain gorilla experts thought they could appeal to the same set of adventurous and rich tourists. So one day in seventy three, a game warden asked Shali. If he'd help habituate a group of guerrillas, habituate means get them used to having people around step one to tourism. And effectively indicated that I'd be happy to be a Guinea pig. The idea is to find a distance that the wild gorillas are comfortable with, and then quietly work their way closer to the group. At the beginning of this process, the guerrillas tend to be nervous for the most part they've had no encounters with other great apes in particular human great apes and it's frightening for them. One famous story of Habituating Morillas was of Dian Fossey she's a guerilla research pioneer in the nineteen sixties she moved by herself to a volcano in Rwanda and through persistence and patience she ended up habituating a number of guerrilla groups. Fosse's story was told in the nineteen. eighty-eight movie gorillas in the mist Fosse's played by Sigourney Weaver, and there's one part in the movie that shows one of her earliest encounters learning about a guerrillas personal space. Here's what that sounded like. They're scared and lots of wrong inscribing lots of charges in the vegetation and a pretty invigorating experience. I'll say that sounds very exciting. The okay. You're adrenaline going the habituation process is slow. It can take more than a year until a group of guerrillas except having people nearby over the next decade more guerrilla groups were habituated and that habituation gave birth to mountain gorilla tourism because for every new habituated group that meant more tourists could hike into the forest and get close to some of the world's rarest apes and Charlie says from up close there's a lot to love about gorillas. A big beautiful great eighth than an elven guerillas in particular are are very, very majestic. They've got long black hair. They've got lovely features jolly was smitten by nineteen eighty eight. He was still working with guerrillas as director of the mountain gorillas project. It was a group that helped manage Rwanda's volcanoes national park. One of the few places on Earth at that mountain gorillas live in the wild. And why routine would be to go to park headquarters early in the morning Attach myself to a tourist group that was going out with guards and guides assigned to that guerilla group. I would spend the tourist time with them monitoring the Rollo's assessing health and behavioral status and all that kind of stuff. Essentially, it was up to Shali to make sure the guerrillas were healthy. His staff was doing its job and his growing groups of tourists were safe and happy in an average week. He'd visit every habituated gorilla group in the park, which means he spent hours in close quarters with more than one hundred guerrillas. He got to know them and they got used to him. It's the opportunity of a lifetime. Mediate. One of Shali big projects was to do a guerilla census. which is basically the same thing as human senses. But for guerrillas at the time, we didn't even know how many mountain gorillas there were. So every day he'd hike into the park count them watch quietly for a few hours and hike back to park headquarters guerrillas tend to live in these large family groups. So for Shali who knew each group and their habits, they were never that hard to find. A pretty predictable. Pattern throughout the day. Is Sleep throughout the night the and so in the early morning there in what is called night nest daylight the the silverback in particular is likely the first two rows and he's basically often feeding the rest of the group they'll follow and they will feed for a couple of hours they live in electrical a a big salad bowl. Did you say Salad? Bowl? I said that the forest is like a big salad bowl. Guerrillas have basically a diet that consists of probably seventy different plant species and they're selectively feeding as they go about their business in the fourth. Wash Allie was tallying the guerrillas. He also kept an eye on their health. He was used to guerrillas who are under the weather. Usually, it was typical sniffles are sneezes but in case a guerilla got very sick. The parkhead veterinarians on staff the mostly he just watched the gorillas eat and sleep mid morning. They will likely take a rest and so they'll build what are called nests. Girl. Asleep younger Hilas play but mostly they eat. Sounds like the life. Probably six o'clock as the sun is going down the bill, the night nest and starts all over again Mr calling my bed, my night nest. Absolutely. Not. Since Shali spent so much time with these age. They sort of became like an extended family and like everyone's family with goals and cool cousins Shali. Some favorites that he'd get excited to see he remembers this one three year old female named Cotto. Do very very well, she was a very, very interesting young and Albury social within the group and. Yet. She was a very special rule what mater special? I think basically the social interactions, it's not at all unusual for for young males within a group to be very very social I. Mean they're they're young, they're energetic. They're they're feeling their oats within the group As I recall was was a female who who had the personality of a lot of the young nails that especially during playtime she was right in the thick of things in terms of Interactions One day specifically February twenty Fourth Nineteen eighty-eight Shali and his team noticed cotto cough. He remembers it wasn't a normal tickle in your throat. It was more of a hack. Very harsh cough and it just was continuous on that particular day and as a result of that we determined that we would come back the next day to monitor and then as I recall. The call the subsequent.

Dian Fossey was found murdered at her camp in Rwanda's Veru mountains. Although the killer had vanished there was no shortage of potential suspects. Fossey was aggressive towards the areas poachers ars and known to be abusive with her own staff as well shortly after the funeral on December thirty first nineteen eighty five the Rwandan ondon police made an arrest. Five of Fossey's trackers were taken into custody and placed in the Ruhengeri prison there were two motivating factors behind the arrests. I the murder weapon which had been found Fossey's bed came from the research cap up second. The police felt the trackers had behaved suspiciously at the funeral. However the logic behind behind both of these points was extremely tenuous? The police were unable to properly take fingerprints from the murder weapon because it was passed back and forth between between so many people between its discovery and it being placed into evidence as for the so-called suspicious behavior at the funeral. It was down down to a cultural misunderstanding. During the event one of Fossey's American colleagues gave one of the trackers a hug. This gesture is extremely extremely uncommon in Rwanda even in sad circumstances like a funeral strangers would only shake hands. Since this American colleague League was known to clash with Foxy the police assumed that she and the trackers had conspired together they believed the trackers had carried out the murder order on the American colleagues behalf. Ultimately the trackers were never charged with any crime although it took several months for them to be released from prison they didn't face any further punishment in mid January area of nineteen eighty six. The police stumbled onto a new lead. Instead of the killer coming from inside the research camp they thought it may have have been a poacher. This belief came from a letter Fossey had written about an encounter with a poacher that past November evidently fosse captured a poacher and discovered magic charms on his person these items were so important to the poacher that Fossey's Guards had to restrain rain him even though the poacher was put in prison Rwandan. Jails didn't have the same security measures as American correctional institutions as long as he had enough money. The poacher could have easily hired some muscle to break into Fossey's cabin and retrieve his charms then when Fosse woke up during the break in the intruder killed her with one of the camps machetes unfortunately proving that this poacher had arranged the attack doc on Fossey was nearly impossible to prove nevertheless the investigations continued and by mid nineteen eighty six. The police lease finally formally charged a suspect but it wasn't a poacher. It was Wayne Maguire. The graduate researcher sure who was one of the first people to find Fosse's body. According to the Rwandan Wander Government Mcguire had killed his mentor in order to steal the manuscript of her upcoming book as evidence. They pointed to hairs clenched clenched. In fossey's hands laboratory tests showed that they belonged to a white person and Maguire was the only Caucasian at the camp at at the time of the murder. Additionally the government claimed McGuire had taken two boxes of papers from Fossey's cabin after the murder her even though Maguire was no longer in the country the Rwandan government went ahead with a trial in absentia. With no defense present McGuire ear was found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging ultimately. This verdict was likely mostly for show. Rwanda didn't have have an extradition agreement with the United States and made no attempt to actually make sure that Maguire was punished for his alleged crime. Furthermore the American authorities never seemed to seriously consider him a suspect.

It is something that everyone must do. First of all, a safari is something everyone must do. But for sure to be that close to these magnificent majestic creatures that that have so much power that don't wanna hurt you that are just sitting there just that's that's what seems very unattainable like five. Nansha? But the more popular they've become they've they've they have the very high end luxury safaris, but they do have economical ways for you to do it. You can stay in a motel, and they'll just bring you a stuffed animal. That's exactly right. That's what I'll be doing with my family. But yeah, it's cool. It's like it seems to be on pretty much. Everyone's bucket list is like, oh, yeah. I want to go on a safari and then to see. Yeah. And it should be because I mean, it you are entering their territory. It's their world and the way that they look at you is I mean, it's it's hard to describe. I remember just before we went we had dinner, and Leo DiCaprio was at this dinner on that was a name dropping someone here in L A. Sorry. Or the name. Leo was at the dinner. But you know, in of all the things that Leo has done in his life with his foundation because I mean, he's away. Leo has dedicated himself to the environment is it's it's unbelievable. It's really an amazing. But he said one of his favorite things was this guerilla truck owners Wanda. Yeah. Wow. All right. So you may have seen this on the show. But this is Porsche's. This is the ground breaking ceremony attended by Porsche Ellen was back here. Doing shows. Thanks to us in Rwanda first week of at where it's really amazing ticket. Listen so a couple of weeks ago. My wife Porsche went to Rwanda she was there for the ground breaking ceremony for my campus that we're building for the Dian Fossey gorilla fund to help protect the mountain gorillas, and it was an incredible experience. And I want to show you more of what happened because she it was it's amazing. This thing came about because I thought what on earth? Do you give the woman who has everything? So I thought the best gift that I could give her was a way to connect her past to her future at a little girl. Now seeing that brave woman scientists who left her comfortable life to set up a tent in the Rwandan forest to save a species on the brink of extinction was transformative for Ellen's it made her see the world differently, and it made her see her place within it differently. I gave this gift to Ellen because we both love and wanted to protect gorillas after coming here. However, we fell in love with the country and its people. This is. The guys on. So this campus isn't for me or for Ellen. It's to the people of Rwanda, it is my hope that the campus will serve as a catalyst to encourage US Dream bigger to know that we too can make an impact and that all of us can become trailblazers just like Ellen and. Brian. Incredible. You know, they're endangered like there's not a lot of them. No, there's well. There was eighty and then the Reese the recent count. I think we're up to a thousand.

We are going to learn about Diane Fossey, an American woman who loved animals and grew up to become a famous zoologist or someone who studies animal behavior. Diane Fossey was born in San Francisco, California in nineteen thirty two. She grew up with her mother and stepfather and developed a strong love of animals at a young age. She enjoyed horseback riding as a kid and teenager and she dreamed of becoming a veterinarian Abed Narian as a doctor for animals. Diane went to college in California and started studying veterinary courses, but decided to change and studied occupational therapy. Instead, occupational therapy is a type of therapy that helps people who are injured or unwell to learn to use their bodies again after she finished college. Diane worked at a hospital in California. She was offered a job as the director of children's hospitals. Occupational department and Kentucky. So she moved there and nineteen fifty five in Kentucky. Diane lived on a farm and spent a lot of her free time with the farm animals. Diane had decided that she wanted to travel and see other parts of the world and she really wanted to visit Africa. So she saved up her money and in nineteen sixty three she traveled to Africa for the first time while she was there. She traveled to many countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and the Congo. And africa. Diane, a number of other scientists and researchers she was inspired by the work. They were doing in different areas, including paleo anthropology or the study of human fossils and wildlife photography the wildlife, photographers that she met we're working on a movie about African gorillas. They took Diana long on one of their trips to find the girl as in their natural habitat a habitat as an animal's natural Homer environment. When Diane for saw the guerrillas on that trip, she became instantly in love with them. She liked that they had individual personalities, and we're shy. She wanted to return again to see them. Diane went back home to Kentucky and met others who are interested in gorillas. She met a professor named Louis Leakey and together they made plans to conduct a long-term study on the gorillas of the Rwandan mountains in order to conduct the research. Diane needed to live in Rwanda. And so she moved there and spent her time living mostly in the mountains with the guerrillas and watching them she lived like this for four years until the war broke out and had to leave to escape the war. Diane continued to study guerrillas and worked on getting a doctorate degree based on her research at Cambridge University in England. In nineteen Eighty-three. Diane published a book about her research. Enter experience living with the guerrillas. It was called gorillas in the mist. And it became a best selling book the book was even made into a popular movie in nineteen eighty eight. Unfortunately, there were a lot of people who did not like, Diane and the work. She was doing many people at the time tried to hunt grill as and kill them since they could you they could get a lot of money for their bodies and parts Diane spoke out against these hunters or poachers. And because of this many of these hunters did not like her. They did not want. Her message of protecting the gorillas to be spread sadly on December twenty six nine thousand nine hundred five Fosse was found dead at her London forest camp. She had been killed by the poachers. However, no one was ever caught or put in jail for what happened. The work with guerrillas continues through an international research fund called the Diane Fossey girl fund, the fund continues to operate and has expanded to other areas of Africa. The funds goal is to protect mountain gorillas and other endangered species in the guerrillas habitats. Diane Fossey is considered the leading researcher on the behavior of mountain gorillas. She worked hard throughout her life to protect these animals from extinction and from hunters and poachers. Who wanted to kill them, Diane's love of the guerrillas helped her to see them as highly intelligent individual animals and her passion for helping to save them made the girl of lives better from Diane? We can learn about the power of an individual to make a difference in the lives of other beings, including animals, sometimes one person interests and efforts can help save an entire species of animal. She showed bravery and travelling to Africa and facing the dangers of the. Jungle and poachers who disagreed with her and her strength and bravery continue to inspire others. Is there a type of animal that you love are there ways that you can learn more about these animals are there ways that you can get involved in caring for them like Diane? You can make a difference in the lives of animals that you love.
