Devra Kleiman - Brazil field notes, May - July 1985
About the Project
How do you handle new assignments and responsibilities? Dr. Devra Kleiman joined the National Zoological Park in 1972 to work in its captive breeding program. In 1983, she was appointed Assistant Director of Academic Programs. Nonetheless, she did not let these administration responsibilities lessen her work to reintroduce the endangered golden lion tamarin into its native habitat of Brazil. This field book is a personal record of her 1985 work in Brazil, the same year she was appointed as the National Zoo's Assistant Director of Research. Join other #volunpeers to help us transcribe her field notes and track her progress observing a group of tamarins reintroduced a year or two before. Learn more about what others are discovering during Women's History Month at #DiscoverTCWomen.
