Is There a 'Doctor' in the House?

Dec. 8, 2020

We are delighted to announce that our founder, bonobo hero Claudine André, was chosen to receive an honorary doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Bern, Switzerland! Claudine was one of seven chosen to receive degrees from the university this year.

The faculty honored her lifetime of achievement and praised her for being:

  • a strong woman in Africa

  • a heroine of animal welfare

  • always thinking positively and never giving up
