The Trimates

 (ref Wikipedia)

 Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Birute Galdikas famously called as Trimates (also known as Leakey’s Angels) were chosen to contribute to the research of primates. They went on to become important scholars and provided ground breaking insights in the field of primatology.


Jane Goodall- is considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Goodall is best known for her 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. 


Diane Fossey- was an American zoologist, primatologist, and anthropologist who undertook an extensive study of Gorilla groups over a period of 18 years. She studied them daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda.


Birute Galdikas- is an anthropologist, primatologist, conservationist, and author of several books relating to the endangered orangutan, particularly the Bornean orangutan.  Galdikas is recognized as a leading authority on orangutans.


The Trimates provided insights into the great ape societies that the male researchers could not do previously.  The empathy and the emotional bond that they created with the apes by living with them for years in their habitat helped them understand their behaviors and social interactions. This was an important breakthrough for the understanding of human evolution.


Today, after many battles the significance of individual personality in primate groups is taken for granted. These pioneers have done so much research that any animal study is inevitable without the study of their research.
