October 18, 2011

Her stuck moment:

Fossey, who had spent years studying mountain gorillas, was distraught over the death of her favorite primate, Digit, who was killed by poachers. 

She gets restoked: By shifting her focus from research to poaching prevention, she reignited her passion by founding the Digit Fund, an anti-poaching organization. 

Unstuck result: The group, now called the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, stabilized the gorilla population in Rwanda and continues to serve as a haven for rescued gorillas.
