Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
Gombe: 60 Years of Discovery
“Hers is a powerful message to protect the inherent rights of every living creature, to provide hope for future generations and to sound an urgent call against the greatest environmental threat of all – climate change. Anyone who has heard her speak, or heard her story, has been mesmerized by her life’s work and moved by her philanthropic legacy.” – Leonardo DiCaprio, for Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019
60 years ago, a young Jane Goodall arrived on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania for the first time. Without realizing it, she would soon change the world forever. 26-year-old Jane Goodall was tasked with being the first to formally observe and better understand our closest living relatives in the animal kingdom: wild chimpanzees. Jane’s subsequent groundbreaking discoveries revealed remarkable truths about chimpanzee behavior and humankind. Today, Dr. Goodall and the Jane Goodall Institute have redefined species conservation to put people at the center. Dr. Goodall travels around the globe to spread hope and turn it into action to improve the well-being of people, other animals and the environment we share. Hear these stories and more in her own words as Dr. Goodall takes us on a journey of discovery through her childhood dreams of living alongside wildlife, first steps in Gombe, greatest revelations and her reasons for hope.
