Prepare yourself for a rare speaking
engagement with famed primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. Best known for her study of chimpanzee social and
family life, Goodall is widely recognzied for her work in preserving the natural habitat of chimpanzees, especially in Tanzania’s
Gombe Stream National Park. In 1977, she formed the Jane Goodall Institute to further research and preservation efforts.
Goodall, born in London, England in 1934, always had a fascination with animals as a young girl. She was eventually taken
on as an assitant and secretary to Louis Leakey, an archeaologist and naturalist famed for his research on human evolution.
In the 70s, she formed the Jane Goodall Institute, which made a name for itself by pursuing community-oriented conservation
efforts around the world.
It’s not every day that a scientific pioneer will discuss her seminal achievments with you. Goodall studied chimps
relating to one another, often building friendships or familiar relationships, and at other times turning against one another,
even waging “war.” Her insight into the world of the chimpanzee isn’t just for the scientific community.
There’s plenty to learn about our own human natures in the study of these socially complex animals. Look
