Devra Kleiman - Colonel notebook (infant golden lion tamarin), 1977
About the Project
This is definitely going to be the most adorable transcription field note project of the 2019 Her Natural History campaign. One of conservation biologist Dr. Devra Kleiman's biggest professional accomplishments was reintroducing the endangered golden lion tamarin into the wild. From July 1977 to November 1978, Kleiman recorded observations of a new born golden lion tamarin. The notes include instances when the infant hiccupped, sneezed, ate, and more. She describes one night how the baby curled up into a fetal position and slept in her hand. We really just can't get enough of this journal! Assist us in joining a team of volunpeers to help transcribe the observations Kleiman made in the pursuit of saving this endangered species.
