Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Bats - Owls - "Songs of the Humpback Whale"

Answer: Roger Payne

In 1967 Scott McVay and Roger Payne discovered that the humpback whale sounds during breeding seasons were repeated, proving to them that the whales were communicating. Some of the recordings were released in 1970 as the album "Songs of the Humpback Whale".

The work and album helped raise "Save the Whales" awareness and led to the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment voting affirmative on a moratorium on commercial whaling. (Alas, not all nations voted yes.)
2. Amboseli Elephant Research Project, Kenya - Echo

Answer: Cynthia Moss

Cynthia Moss left a job as a reporter at "Newsweek" to work with Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton as a research assistant. In 1972 she started the Amboseli Elephant Research Project. She observes the elephants at the Amboseli National Park, their numbers fluctuating between 600 and 1,100.

Echo, who died in 2009 at 65 years of age, was the matriarch of one of the families that Moss has observed for years. She was also the subject of several documentaries and books.
3. The Shark Lady - "Lady with a Spear"

Answer: Eugenie Clark

Apparently Clark was intrigued by sharks from an early age and an initial visit to the New York Aquarium. Her first book, "Lady with a Spear", was published in 1953 and tells of various quirky fish. It brought her to the attention of Anne and William H. Vanderbilt who built the Cape Haze Marine Laboratory.

Clark helped to pioneer scuba diving and made more than 70 deep dives in submersibles.
4. Saint Louis Zoo - "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom"

Answer: Marlin Perkins

Perkins had worked at the St. Louis Zoological Park and the Buffalo Zoological Park before he became director of the Lincoln Park Zoo. While at the Lincoln Park Zoo he hosted "Zoo Parade" (1950-57). He returned to the St. Louis Zoological Park and was later offered the job of host on "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom". The show would run from 1963 to 1988 (Perkins retired in 1985).
5. Baba ya Simba ("Father of Lions") - "Born Free" - Christian the lion

Answer: George Adamson

"Born Free" was written by Joy Adamson, wife of George. Most of the profits from the book were donated to various wildlife conservation efforts. George, a senior wildlife warden, killed a charging lioness leaving three cubs. Two of the cubs (Big One and Lustica) went to a zoo, but Elsa was raised by George and Joy. They would eventually successfully return her to the wild.

Christian the lion was purchased from Harrods in London. As he grew older it became clear to his owners that he couldn't stay in London. They gave him to Adamson who would help Christian to successfully return to the wild.
6. Sierra Club - Yosemite National Park

Answer: John Muir

John Muir was born in Scotland in 1838 and emigrated with his family to the U.S. in 1849, around 11 years of age. After several other travel adventures, he first visited Yosemite in 1868. He actually spent less than 4 years in Yosemite, but the experience shaped the remainder of his life.

He published "The Treasure of the Yosemite" and "Features of the Proposed National Park", and in 1890 a bill was passed based on his published recommendations. In 1892, Muir would become the first elected president of the Sierra Club and remain in office until his death in 1914.
7. BBC - "Zoo Quest" - "Life on Earth"

Answer: David Attenborough

David Attenborough would begin full-time work at BBC in 1952 as a producer. Teamed up with Jack Lester as presenter and Charles Lagus as photographer, "Zoo Quest" aired in 1954. When Lester took sick after the return from the field, Attenborough stepped in as the presenter. "Life on Earth" aired in 1979 with Attenborough as presenter.

It would become the first of a series of programs about aspects of Earth's flora and fauna.
8. "The Crocodile Hunter" - Australia Zoo - "Crikey"

Answer: Steve Irwin

The Beerwah Reptile and Fauna Park was started by Steve Irwin's parents, Bob and Lynn. It was renamed the Australia Zoo in 1992. Steve married Terri Raines in 1992 and their honeymoon was filmed and became the pilot for the show "The Crocodile Hunter" which aired from 1996-2007. Steve Irwin, recognized for his catchphrase "Crikey", died in 2005 while filming a documentary.
9. Aqua-Lung - "The Silent World" - Calypso

Answer: Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Cousteau co-invented the Aqua-Lung with Émile Gagnan, patented in France as the CG45. "The Silent World: A Story of Undersea Discovery and Adventure" was published in 1953 and would inspire "The Silent World", a documentary filmed underwater. The film was shot aboard "Calypso", Cousteau's research vessel from 1950-1997.
10. Kasakela chimpanzee community - "My Friends the Wild Chimpanzees"

Answer: Jane Goodall

Goodall, originally hired as a secretary for Louis Leakey, was sent by him to Gombe Stream National Park. Leakey would later arrange funding for her to get a PhD in ethology (study of animal behavior).

Not without controversy about her methods, Goodall observed both tool making and carnivorous behavior. These observations would change the long-standing beliefs of chimpanzee communities.
