On the day that Conservation
International have announced that nearly half of all primate
species are facing extinction, we can proudly report that our own
Kirstie Reed is tackling the problem single-handed.
Kirstie, currently in Bolivia on a 6-month sabbatical from her job
as Account Director at Mosaic, has
taken 8 monkeys under her protective wing. This comes as no
surprise to anyone who knows her: she launched a credible and
heartfelt Twitter campaign to become the new Lara Croft; she runs
children's parties in her spare time and she is a devoted fan of
the legendary Lion Man. And, of course, before you say it - she's
used to working with various evolutionary stages of primate at
Mosaic. Boom boom.
The question is, what will her monkey moniker be? Will she be
The Gibbon Girl? Kirstie of the Apes? Lemur Croft? Answers on a
blog post please...
What makes her selfless gesture all the more altruistic is the
fact that our Kirstie absolutely hates bananas. Even the faintest
whiff of one. So, she's either introducing them to a whole new diet
or overcoming her aversion.
