Geraldine Simmons joined the Whale of a Time Community of environmentally conscious artists raising awareness of endangered species through capturing the beauty in nature and inspiring others to take care of our planet.
Geraldine says, "I am so grateful for the magnificent wildlife that graces our world that inspires me to draw from my soul. I have been drawing and painting wildlife for more than 20 years where many of my works have been selected for exhibitions by invitation for animal protection campaigns. The
purpose of my art is to communicate that the world’s animals are not just mere commodities; to be exploited, used or forgotten."

Monday 12th March 2012 Commonwealth Observance Service at Westminster Abbey
On Monday, March 12, 2012, Jane gave a special address during the Commonwealth Observance Service at Westminster Abbey in London. The event honoured the annual celebration of the British Commonwealth. This year’s theme was “Connecting Cultures.”
Jane addressed heads of state and more than 1,000 school children during her speech. Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Philip and other members of the royal family were present to hear Jane’s message. Jane also filled the ordinarily formal Westminster Abbey with her signature chimpanzee pant-hoot. "It was connections between England and Kenya that first enabled me to achieve my childhood dream when I sailed from England in 1957. It was connections with Kenya and Tanzania that enabled me start my studies...that I continue today," Jane said.
Following her speech, Jane joined the royal family and other dignitaries at a private reception at Marlborough House to commemorate the day.
