Dr. Jane Goodall is a renowned primatologist whose chimpanzee behavioral research helped redefine the relationship between humans and animals. Born in London, she began her landmark field study in 1960 in what is now Tanzania under the mentorship of famed anthropologist and paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey.

In 1977, Dr. Goodall founded the Jane Goodall Institute to continue her pioneering research. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, the Institute’s global youth program.

Through books, television documentaries and personal appearances around the world, Dr. Goodall emphasizes that each individual can effect positive change for the betterment of all living things.

In addition to a host of scientific awards, Dr. Goodall’s many honors include being named a United Nations Messenger of Peace and investiture as a Dame of the British Empire.
