Dian Fossey’s 82nd birthday: Google Doodle celebrates late American zoologist

Google has celebrated the 82nd birthday of late American zoologist Dian Fossey with a Doodle on its search page.
The image features a group of gorillas, with one touching Dian Fossey’s hair while she makes notes.
A US zoologist, Fossey studied gorillas living in the mountain forests of Rwanda, Africa, in great depth over a period of 18 years.
Her extensive research greatly enriched the scientific community’s understanding of mountain gorillas.
As a child, Fossey dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. After studying the subject at San Jose State College, on the US west coast, she changed her major to occupational therapy. During this time she became more interested in Africa, and retained her interest in animals.
