Lou Grossfeldt has always wanted to work with animals.
In Our Primate Family Lou Grossfeldt writes about her love of and work with primates. I have knownand admired Lou since 2008 when I first visited the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia where she hasworked as a primate keeper for much of her life. When I visit Australia I always look forward to spendingtime with Lou and the other keepers at the zoo hearing the latest stories about the chimpanzee family. Indeed, during her more than twenty years experience with monkeys and apes (and other animals, too) Lou has so many stories to share, stories that will fascinate and often enlighten those who read this book. It is my hope that many people will read and enjoy these stories. And that this will encourage them to join the growing band of those of us who care and help us to make a positive difference for primates, and all living things.
