For the Love of Animals
Dr Jane Goodall - Few names in history have enjoyed her degree of longevity, reverence, or had such a great impact on the animal kingdom, and Jane Goodall has had all three in her life!
Dr Jane Goodall is a dedicated woman who grew up with animals from an early age, and when her mother gave her a chimp doll when she was a girl, their outraged friends predicted she would have nightmares from this wild animal doll!
She is now 83 years old and has spent the majority of her life working for and with animals and in particular, chimpanzees.
Jane first dreamed of working with animals after reading Dr Doolittle and Tarzan when she was about eight years old and she was fascinated by the thought of being in the jungle with all the animals and being a part of it all.
This, in turn, led her on a journey to Tanzania, in 1960 and the Gombe Stream Reserve in that area. At the time a small boat was her only link back to the civilised world and from there grew her love for chimpanzees and her research into these wild animals that are so closely linked to man.
If you have more time, the following is a fascinating story about Jane Goodall who started working with chimps at 26 years old. Her classic studies stretch from the 1960's to the present day and this is a short history of her work with these untamed chimpanzees.
Jane is coming back to Australia in June for "An Evening with Dr Jane Goodall".
Think Inc. in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute Australia will be hosting this Event for Perth audiences. The Jane Goodall Institute Australia is a not for profit organisation who connect animals, people and the environment.
Jane with her beloved chimpanzees
Jane has, in her career, made groundbreaking discoveries about chimpanzees and has discovered that they are incredible, intelligent beings capable of using tools, language and a range of emotions.
