Jane Goodall

In 1960, Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall traveled to Tanzania to study the Kasakela chimpanzee community in Gombe Stream National Park. It is at this park, located on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, that Goodall conducted her 45 year study to become the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. Goodall’s research at Gombe Stream National Park is best known to the scientific community for challenging the long-standing belief of the day that only humans could construct tools. She also observed that chimpanzees demonstrated human emotions and actions as well as forming lifelong family and social relationships. In 1977, Goodall founded the Jane Goodall Institute, an international wildlife and environment conservation organization. You can learn more about Jane Goodall here.
