Facts about Jane Goodall Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall was born in 1934 in London, England.
Goodall is best known for her over 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees since she first went to Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania in 1960.
In 1977, Goodall established the Jane Goodall Institute (USA), which supports the Gombe research, and she is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.
Global youth program Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when a group of 16 local teenagers met with Goodall on her back porch in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
In April 2002, Secretary-General Kofi Annan named Goodall a United Nations Messenger of Peace.
Jane Goodall is an animal rights activist from England, known as «the woman who gave a new meaning to the word man.» Dame Valerie Jane Morris Goodall was born in London on April 3, 1934. Jane was the first child in the family, and the second was her younger sister, Judy.
As a child, Jane’s father gave her a toy chimpanzee, thanks to which Jane developed an interest and love for animals. And at the age of 18, she graduated from high school and began to realize her dreams of studying wildlife.
To earn money for her trip to Africa, Jane worked as a secretary at Oxford University and at a documentary film studio located in London.
Jane Goodall was an activist in many animal rights movements that defended the rights of animals and called for them to be treated with the greatest possible kindness and respect.
Jane Goodall is best known for her research at Gombe Stream National Park for over four decades. During her research, Jane proposed a new model of attitude towards chimpanzees — to give them names, not numbers, as was done everywhere before her.
Prior to her research, it was believed that man is the only being who is able to make a tool to facilitate his life, and that this is what distinguishes man from other living beings on the planet. But it was her research that put an end to this belief, since during her observations Jane observed chimpanzees who broke off tree branches and tore off leaves from them in order to get a device for effective termite hunting.
