From her 40 years of research on chimpanzee behavior and social relations to her present day commitment to social and environmental causes, Dr. Jane Goodall’s contributions to humanity are remarkable.  Her extraordinary life, as a scientist and conservationist, has been highlighted with her close association with the famed paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey.  It was at his suggestion that she set up camp, in 1960, in the Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Reservation on Lake Tanganyika.  For nearly ten years she studied the rarely observed lives of chimpanzees.

Her observations and discoveries are internationally heralded.  Her research and writing have made, and are making revolutionary inroads into scientific thinking regarding the evolution 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, she 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.

In 1977 she founded The Jane Goodall Institute with the goal of creating a more caring, sustainable world.   She has established chimpanzee sanctuaries for the care and rehabilitation of orphaned chimpanzees in four African countries.  In addition, she has founded an international environmental education and humanitarian program for youth, Roots & Shoots.  This program teaches care and respect for the environment, non-human animals and for the human community.

The author of many acclaimed books and articles, Dr. Goodall’s current bestseller Reason for Hope, is a poignant and insightful memoir that explores the spiritual and scientific experiences that have shaped her life.  The book is also the subject of a recent PBS television portrait.  Other books she has authored include Through a Window: My Thirty Years with the Chimpanzees of Gombe, My Life with the Chimpanzees, and In the Shadow of Man.
