The year 2010 marks a monumental milestone for the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and its founder, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE. Fifty years ago, Goodall, who is today a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in what is now Tanzania's Gombe National Park. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things. For more information about JGI please visit www.janegoodall.org.
Professor Wrangham has been studying chimpanzees for over 30 years. He started his work at Gombe under Dr. Goodall. Today, Professor Wrangham continues to collaborate with Dr. Goodall and the Jane Goodall Institute and is the director of the Kibale Chimpanzee Project in Uganda.
