Dr. Jane Goodall
Senior Advisor, Conservation and Biodiversity

Jane Goodall began her landmark study of chimpanzees in Tanzania in June 1960, under the mentorship of anthropologist and paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey. Her work at Gombe Stream would become the foundation of primatological research and redefine the relationship between humans and animals.

Jane Goodall began her landmark study of chimpanzees in Tanzania in June 1960, under the mentorship of anthropologist and paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey. Her work at Gombe Stream would become the foundation of primatological research and redefine the relationship between humans and animals.

One of Jane’s most significant discoveries came in her first year at Gombe, when she saw chimps stripping leaves off stems to make tools for fishing termites out of nearby mounds. This and subsequent observations would force scientists to rethink the definition that separated man from other animals: “man the toolmaker.” Jane also observed chimps hunting and eating bushpigs and other animals, disproving the widely held belief that chimpanzees were primarily vegetarians.

Dr. Goodall defied scientific convention by giving the chimpanzees names instead of numbers and insisted on the validity of her observations that the chimps had distinct personalities, minds and emotions. She wrote of lasting chimpanzee family bonds. Through the years her work yielded surprising insights such as the discovery that chimp engage in a primitive kind of warfare.

Dr. Goodall established the Gombe Stream Research Center in 1965. Under the stewardship of Tanzanian field staff and other researchers, it continues Dr. Goodall’s work today, making it one of the longest uninterrupted wildlife studies in existence.

In 1977, Goodall established the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which supports the Gombe work and other research, education and conservation and development programs. These include community-centered conservation efforts in Africa, which provide local people with tools to build sustainable livelihoods while promoting regional conservation goals such as reforestation and an end to the illegal commercial bushmeat trade. Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program, which involves students from preschool through university in projects that benefit people, animals and the environment, today hosts more than 8,000 groups in nearly 100 countries.

Dr. Goodall travels an average of 300 days per year, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees, other environmental crises and her reasons for hope that humankind will solve the problems it has imposed on the Earth. She continually urges her audiences to recognize their personal responsibility and ability to effect change through consumer action, lifestyle change and activism.

Dr. Goodall’s scores of honors include the Medal of Tanzania, the National Geographic Society’s Hubbard Medal, Japan’s prestigious Kyoto Prize, Spain’s Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research, the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science and the Gandhi/King Award for Nonviolence. In April 2002, Secretary-General Annan appointed Dr. Goodall to serve as a United Nations “Messenger of Peace,” and she was reappointed in June 2007 by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. In 2004, Prince Charles invested Dr. Goodall as a Dame of the British Empire, the female equivalent of knighthood. In 2006, Dr. Goodall received the French Legion of Honor, presented by Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, as well as the UNESCO Gold Medal.

Dr. Goodall’s list of publications is extensive, including two overviews of her work at Gombe – In the Shadow of Man and Through a Window – as well as two autobiographies in letters, the best-selling autobiography Reason for Hope and many children’s books. Her latest book is Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating. The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior is recognized as the definitive work on chimpanzees. Dr. Goodall has been the subject of numerous television documentaries and is featured in the large-screen format film, Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees (2002). In 2004, she was featured in two Discovery Channel Animal Planet specials – Jane Goodall’s Return to Gombe and Jane Goodall’s State of the Great Ape.
