Much of the information we have today about chimpanzees comes from thegroundbreaking, long-term research of the great conservationist, Jane Goodall.Jane Goodall was born in London, England, on April 3, 1934. On her second birthday, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Jubilee was namedafter a baby chimp in the London Zoo, and seemed to foretell the course Jane’s lifewould take. To this day, Jubilee sits in a chair in Jane’s London home. From anearly age, Jane was fascinated by animals and animal stories. By the age of 10, shewas talking about going to Africa to live among the animals there. At the time, inthe early 1940s, this was a radical idea because women did not go to Africa bythemselves. As a young woman, Jane finished school in London, attendedsecretarial school, and then worked for a documentary filmmaker for a while.When a school friend invited her to visit Kenya, she worked as a waitress until shehad earned the fare to travel there by boat. She was 23 years old. Once in Kenya,she met Dr. Louis Leakey, a famous paleontologist and anthropologist. He wasimpressed with her thorough knowledge of Africa and its wildlife, and hired her toassist him and his wife on a fossil-hunting expedition to Olduvai Gorge. Dr.Leakey soon realized that Jane was the perfect person to complete a study he had been planning for some time. She expressed her interest in the idea of studyinganimals by living in the wild with them, rather than studying dead animals through paleontology. Dr. Leakey and Jane began planning a study of a group of chimpanzees who were living on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Kenya. At first,the British authorities would not approve their plan. At the time, they thought itwas too dangerous for a woman to live in the wilds of Africa alone. But Jane’smother, Vanne, agreed to join her so that she would not be alone. Finally, theauthorities gave Jane the clearance she needed in order to go to Africa and beginher study. In July of 1960, Jane and her mother arrived at Gombe National Park inwhat was then called Tanganyika and is now called Tanzania. Jane faced manychallenges as she began her work. The chimpanzees did not accept her right away,and it took months for them to get used to her presence in their territory. But shewas very patient and remained focused on her goal. Little by little, she was able toenter their world. At first, she was able to watch the chimpanzees only from a greatdistance, using binoculars. As time passed, she was able to move her observation point closer to them while still using camouflage. Eventually, she was able to sitamong them, touching, patting, and even feeding them. It was an amazingaccomplishment for Jane, and a breakthrough in the study of animals in the wild.Jane named all of the chimpanzees that she studied, stating in her journals that shefelt they each had a unique personality. One of the first significant observationsthat Jane made during the study was that chimpanzees make and use tools, muchlike humans do, to help them get food. It was previously thought that humansalone used tools. Also thanks to Jane’s research, we now know that chimps eatmeat as well as plants and fruits. In many ways, she has helped us to see howchimpanzees and humans are similar. In doing so, she has made us moresympathetic toward these creatures, while helping us to better understandourselves. The study started by Jane Goodall in 1960 is now the longest field studyof any animal species in their natural habitat. Research continues to this day inGombe and is conducted by a team of trained Tanzanians. Jane’s life has includedmuch more than just her study of the chimps in Tanzania. She pursued a graduatedegree while still conducting her study, receiving her Ph.D. from CambridgeUniversity in 1965. In 1984, she received the J. Paul Getty Wildlife ConservationPrize for helping millions of people understand the importance of wildlifeconservation to life on this planet. She has been married twice: first to a photographer and then to the director of National Parks. She has one son. Dr. JaneGoodall is now the world’s most renowned authority on chimpanzees, havingstudied their behavior for nearly 40 years. She has published many scientificarticles, has written two books, and has won numerous awards for her groundbreaking work. The Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research,Education, and Conservation was founded in 1977 in California but moved to theWashington, D.C., area in 1998. Its goal is to take the actions necessary to improvethe environment for all living things. Dr. Goodall now travels extensively, givinglectures, visiting zoos and chimp sanctuaries, and talking to young people involvedin environmental education. She is truly a great conservationist and an amazinghuman being. Read this sentence from the article. 1. 'But she was very patient and remained focused on her goal'.
