Jane Goodall was born on April 3, 1934 in London, England. On his second birthday, his father gave him a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Jubilee was named after a chimpanzee at the London Zoo and that seemed to be the change in Jane’s life. To this day, Jubilee sits in a chair in Jane’s London home. Jane was fascinated by animals and animal stories from an early age. By the age of 10, she was talking about going to Africa and living there among the animals. At the time, in the early 1940s, this was a revolutionary idea because women did not travel to Africa alone.

As a young woman, Jane finished school in London, attended a secretarial school, and then briefly worked as a documentary filmmaker. When a classmate invited her to visit Kenya, she worked as a waitress until she could find the fare to travel there by boat. Then she was 23 years old.

Once in Kenya, she met the renowned paleontologist and anthropologist Dr. Louis Leakey. He was impressed by her deep knowledge of Africa and its wildlife and hired her to assist on a fossil-hunting expedition to the Olduvai Gorge. Dr. Leakey soon realized that Jane was the best person to carry out the study he had been planning for some time. He expressed his interest in the idea of ​​studying dead animals through paleontology instead of studying animals living in the wild with them.

Dr. Leakey and Jane began planning a study of a group of chimpanzees living on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Kenya. At first, the British officials did not approve of his plan. At that time he felt that it was very dangerous for a woman to live alone in the jungles of Africa. But Jane’s mother, Wayne, agrees to live with her so that she will not be left alone. Finally, the authorities give Jane the necessary clearance to go to Africa and begin her studies.

In July 1960, Jane and her mother arrived in Gombe National Park, then known as Tanganyika and now Tanzania. Jane faced many challenges when she started her job. The chimpanzees did not accept her immediately, and it took months for them to become used to her presence in their territory. But she was very patient and focused on her goal. Gradually, she was able to enter their world.

At first, she could see the chimpanzee with binoculars from a distance. As time passed, she was able to use camouflage to move her observation point closer to them. Eventually, she was able to sit among them, touch, pat, and even feed them. This was an amazing achievement for Jane and a breakthrough in the study of wild animals. Jane named all the chimpanzees he studied, saying in his journals that he felt each chimpanzee had a unique personality.

One of the first important observations Jane made during the study was that chimpanzees make and use tools like humans to help them obtain food. Earlier it was believed that only man uses tools. Also thanks to Jane’s research, we now know that chimps eat plants and fruit as well as meat. In many ways, it has helped us see how similar chimpanzees and humans are. In doing so, it has made us more empathetic toward these creatures, while helping us to better understand ourselves.

The study, started in 1960 by Jane Goodall, is now the longest field study of any animal species in its natural habitat. Research at Gombe continues today and is conducted by a team of trained Tanzanians.

Jane’s life has included much more than just studying chimpanzees in Tanzania. During his studies, he earned a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1965. In 1984, he was awarded the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation Award for helping millions of people understand the importance of wildlife conservation to life on this planet. She has been married twice: first to a photographer and then to the director of a national park.

After studying chimpanzee behavior for nearly 40 years, Dr. Jane Goodall is now the world’s most famous chimpanzee. He has published many scientific articles. He has written two books and won many awards for his phenomenal work. The Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education and Conservation was founded in California in 1977, but moved to the Washington, DC area in 1998. Its goal is to take necessary action to improve the environment for all living beings.

Dr. Goodall now travels extensively, lecturing, visiting zoos and chimpanzee sanctuaries, and speaking to youth involved in environmental education. He is truly a great conservationist and a wonderful human being. 0 0 0.
