Scientist, Conservationist, Peacemaker, and Mentor. Dr. Jane Goodall is an English primatologist and anthropologist. She is widely considered the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, after over 60 years of studying the social and familial interactions of wild chimpanzees. As a student of Louis Leakey, in 1960, Jane Goodall first set off to observe chimpanzee behavior at Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. In 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute to support the research in Gombe and to afford greater protections to chimpanzees and their habitats. Today she is recognized as a UN Messenger of Peace.
