About Jane Goodall
Dr. Jane Goodall, a pioneer in the study of chimpanzees, began her landmark studies in Africa in 1960. Goodall was named a UN Messenger of Peace in 2002. She is also the recipient of the French Legion of Honor, National Geographic Society’s Hubbard Medal, Japan’s Kyoto Prize and the Gandhi/King Award for Nonviolence. In 2003, Queen Elizabeth II named Goodall a Dame of the British Empire.
Her extensive list of publications includes overviews of her work at Gombe chimpanzee preserve in “In the Shadow of Man” and “Through a Window,” as well as two autobiographies in letters and a spiritual autobiography “Reasons for Hope.” “The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior” is recognized as the definitive work on chimpanzees. Goodall has also written many books for children.
