Jane Goodall is the world's foremost authority on
chimpanzees, having closely observed their behavior for the
past quarter century in the jungles of the Gombe Game
Reserve in Africa, living in the chimps' environment and
gaining their confidence.
Her observations and discoveries are intemationally
heralded. Her research and writing have made, and are
making, revolutionary inroads into scientific thinking
regarding the evolutions of humans.
Dr. Goodall received her Ph.D. from Cambridge University in
1965. She has been the Scientific Director of the Gombe
Stream Research Center since 1967. In 1984, Jane Goodall
received the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation Prize
for "helping millions of people understand the importance
of wildlife conservation to life on this planet." Her other
awards and international recognitions fill pages.
Her scientific articles have appeared in many issues of
National Geographic. She has written scores of papers for
internationally known scientific journals. Dr. Goodall has
also written two books, Wild Chimpanzees and In The Shadow
of Man. She pleads to thousands of people throughout the
world on behalf of her career-long sponsor, the L.S.B.
Jane Goodall attributes her dedication and insight to her
work and her mission in life to her mother, internationally
known author, Vanne Goodall.
In 1985, Jane Goodall's twenty-five years of
anthropological and conservation research was published,
helping us all to better understand the relationship
between all creatures. She has now devoted over thirty
years to her mission.
Dr. Goodall has expanded her global outreach with the
founding of the Jane Goodall Institute based in Ridgefield,
CT. She now teaches and encourages young people to
appreciate the conversation of chimpanzees and all
creatures great and small. She lectures, writes, teaches
and continues her mission in many inventive ways, including
the Chimpanzee Guardian Project.
