Just Wild Enough: Mireya Mayor, Primatologist

For Mireya Mayor, even as a young child whose house was filed with cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, a chicken, and a snapping turtle, nothing was quite wild enough. Older, she traded her pom-poms as a cheerleader for the National Football League for the swamps of the South American jungle. The first woman wildlife TV reporter for National Geographic, she traveled the world, but things still weren't quite wild enough.

It was only when Mireya went to Madagascar that things FINALLY got wild enough. And there, she realized that there were animals who needed protection... and she could be the one to do it. This biography from the She Made History series celebrates the woman who convinced the prime minister of Madagascar to make the mouse lemur’s rain forest a protected national park. It's an inspiring ― and wild — story that shows that courage and determination can make the impossible possible.
