Have you ever wondered why Dr. Jane Goodall carries a stuffed animal around with her? Did you know that his name is Mr. H, and that he is not a chimpanzee (he has a tail, chimps are great apes and do not) but a monkey instead?
Mr. H was given to Jane by Gary Haun, a man who lost his vision at the age of 21 and beat the odds to become a successful magician. Many people told Gary that he could never practice magic because of his blindness, but he proved them wrong and he never gave up. Now not only does he do magic, but he also skydives and is an avid mountain climber having climbed Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain. He even paints!
