Jane Goodall

Primatologist

Born in 1934, Jane Goodall had a passion and true love for animals even as a child. She worked as an anthropologist and primatologist, studying chimpanzees in particular. She watched them hunt meat firsthand, dispelling the belief that chimpanzees were vegetarian. As she learned more and more about chimpanzees, she developed numerous documentaries and publications about animal rescue and environment conservation. Today, she serves as an educator and strives to help others see their power in numbers to solve global problems.
