? 清晨5点45分,太阳刚从东非的贡贝国家公园的上空升起,我们一行人准备按照简研 究黑猩猩的方法去森林里拜访它们。简研究这些黑猩猩家族已经很多年了,她帮助人 们了解黑猩猩跟人类的行为是多么的相似。我们当天的首项任务就是观察黑猩猩一家 是如何醒来的。这意味着我们要返回前一天晚上我们离开黑猩猩一家睡觉的大树旁。 大家坐在树荫下等待着,这时候猩猩们睡醒了,准备离开。然后这群黑猩猩向森林深 处漫步而去,我们尾随其后。在大部分时间里,黑猩猩或相互喂食,或彼此擦身,这 在它们的家庭里是表示爱的方式。简预先提醒我们,到下午的时候我们就会又脏又累。 她说对了。不过到傍晚时分我们觉得这一切都是值得的。我们看到黑猩猩妈妈跟她的 幼子们在树上玩耍,后来看见它们晚上一切回窝里睡觉了。我明白了猩猩家庭成员之 间的联系像人类家庭一样紧密。 在简之前没有人完全了解黑猩猩的行为。她花了多年的时间来观察并记录黑猩猩的日 常生活。从孩提时代起,简就想在动物生活的环境中研究它们。但是,这不是一件简 单的事。当她1960年最初来到贡贝时,对女性来说,住进大森林还是很稀罕的事情。 她母亲头几个月来帮过她的忙,这才使她得以开始自己的计划。她的工作改变了人们 对黑猩猩的看法。比方说,她的一个重要发现是黑猩猩猎食动物。而在此之前,人们 一直认为黑猩猩只吃水果和坚果。她曾经亲眼看到过一群黑猩猩捕杀一只猴子,然后 把它吃掉。她还发现了黑猩猩之间是如何交流的,而她对黑猩猩肢体语言的研究帮助 她勾勒出黑猩猩的社会体系。 40年来,简古道尔一直在呼吁世人了解并尊重这些动物的生活。她主张应该让野生动 物留在野外生活,而不能用于娱乐或广告。她还为黑猩猩建起了可以安全生活的保护 区。她的生活是忙忙碌碌的,然而,正如她所说的:?我一旦停下来,所有的一切都 会涌上心头。我就会想起实验室的黑猩猩,太可怕了。每当我看着野生黑猩猩时,这 个念头总是萦绕着我。我会对自己说:‘难道它们不幸运吗?’然后我就想起那些没 有任何过错却被关在笼子里的小黑猩猩。一旦你看到这些,你就永远不会忘记……‖ 简已经得到了她想要得到的一切:在动物的栖息地工作;获得博士学位;还向世人证 明女人和男人一样也能在森林里生活。她激励着人们为妇女们的成就而欢呼喝彩。
