Born in London in the thirties, Dr. Jane Goodall showed an early fascination with animals and Africa. If you haven’t already heard, she’s a renowned primatologist, anthropologist, and ethologist who is best known for her groundbreaking work with wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania.
In the sixties, at just 26 years old, Dr. Jane Goodall traveled to Gombe to study wild chimpanzees. Her research revolutionized our understanding of primates and their behavior. She discovered that chimpanzees, just like humans, use tools, have complex social structures, and exhibit a range of emotions. Her long-term study, which continues to this very day, has provided valuable insights into the conservation and protection of chimpanzees and their habitats.
But wait, there’s more. This pioneer is also a passionate advocate for environmental and animal rights. In 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute, focusing on wildlife conservation, environmental education, and community development. The institute's Roots & Shoots program empowers young people to make positive changes in their communities and for the planet.
During her incredible life and groundbreaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has proudly earnt a number of awards and honors. In the 90s, she was… awarded the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences (1990) for her work in understanding chimpanzee social behaviors; appointed the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (1995), and awarded the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement (1997) for her leadership in the field of primatology and environmental conservation. Amazing. But that’s not all. The list goes on. Dr. Jane Goodall has received honors for the Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research, Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science, and the Gandhi-King Award for Nonviolence (just to name a few!!).
Even at the inspiring age of 90, she continues to travel across the globe, giving lectures and inspiring people to take action for a sustainable and compassionate world.
