From 1964 she was joined by a number of research assistants, and by 1975 there were 22 Tanzanian, European, and American students (both undergraduate and graduate) working with her. In that year, however, a group of rebels from Zaire kidnapped four members of the research team whom they held for ransom. They were eventually rescued, but from then the research was done mainly by Tanzanians as it was too dangerous for Europeans to be there. Goodall herself was restricted in the research she could carry out.
This same group of researchers published further research results on the chacma baboons in 2001. Sometimes two females competed for the attention of one male Friend. If one were dominant, even if she were much younger, she claimed greater proximity and grooming activity from the Friend than did the other female who was left, in large part, out in the cold. Because of this setback, the subordinate female made two compensatory changes in her life. First, she reduced any contact she had with a potentially infanticidal alpha male.
For example, Circe and Nope were large females who may have been sisters. They played, groomed, hung out together, and supported each other in social conflicts. Circe became the alpha female after Goodalls favorite female Flo, but when Circe died in 1968, Nope did not take over the care of Circes three-year-old daughter Cindy. With no one to look after her, Cindy died seven weeks later. Nope herself never made another close friend, but devoted herself to her family, nursing her second infant Lolita for seven years.
