Jane Goodall, Illustrated2011-05-13 at 11:37 am Blog RSS
Two new picture books, “Me . . . Jane” and “The Watcher,” help fill the gap, and both, wisely, connect Goodall’s childhood to her later achievements.
Even as a young girl, Goodall dreamed she would one day travel to Africa and become a naturalist — not an unusual childhood fantasy. But Goodall actually went on to study under the famed anthropologist Louis Leakey, and to work in Tanzania.
Her research methods were unconventional. Rather than assigning numbers to chimpanzees and studying their behavior from a distance, she immersed herself in the life of a chimpanzee troop, gradually winning its members’ trust. The qualities of patience and observation she displayed as a child serve her well as a primatologist.

May 14 2011, Seattle, WA: Jane’s Journey Documentary Film Screening
A film by Lorenz Knawer
More than 20 years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall, now 75, decided to give up her career as a primatologist, as well as her private life, in order to devote her entire energy to saving our endangered planet. Since then she’s been spending 300 days a year scouring the globe on her mission to spread hope for future generations.
She has taken on the responsibilities of a UN Messenger of Peace, has been honoured with countless awards, was appointed “Dame of the British Empire” and was even admitted to the “Légion d’Honneur”, the highest decoration of France.
