A UN Messenger of Peace and one of the world’s foremost experts on chimpanzees, Jane Goodall is best known for her more than five decades of scientific exploration on the behavior of wild chimpanzees at Gombe National Park, which redefined the relationship between humans and animals. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and their environmental and humanitarian youth program, Roots & Shoots. Today Dr. Goodall travels nearly 300 days each year, devoting herself to conservation and animal welfare issues while sharing stories of hope and inspiring millions globally to make the world a better place for all living things.
