Jane Goodall

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 Stream Game Reserve in Tanzania. The recipient of dozens of awards, Dr. Goodall received her Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1965 and has been the scientific director of the Gombe Stream Research Center since 1967.
Dr. Goodall has expanded her global outreach with the founding of the Jane Goodall Institute, based in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
She now teaches and encourages young people to appreciate all
creatures through the institute's Roots & Shoots program.
