Transcript of Loren Kimpling

Inspirational Jane Goodall was born on April 3, 1934. When growing up her family honored values such as courage, honesty, compassion, and tolerance. When she was little her dad was statioined in the Singapore jungles. He brought back a gift for her that she still cherishes today. A toy chimpanzee. When she was little she recalls of always wanting to travel and work with animals when she became an adult "If you really want something, and really work hard, and take advantage of opportunities, and never give up, you will find a way." Her dream came true when Louis Leaky hired her to be his secretary at the National Museum. He asked her to travel with him and his wife through the Serengeti plain. Leaky was so impressed of how skillful she was, that he selected her to do a four month project in Tanzania where she would study chimpanzees. Jane arrived in Tanzania on July 4, 1960 to start the project. "My mission is to create a world where we can live in harmony with nature." - Jane Goodall - Jane Goodall Jane took a Theosophy class in London that had taught her to be calm and still her thoughts. This helped her, because if she was calm around the animals they would not harm her. Goodall was fascinated with observing the behavior of chimps. On November 4, 1961 was her first incounter with a chimp that She named David Greybeard. "I had a wonderful teacher about animal behavior - my dog Rusty. He taught me that animals have personalities, minds, and feelings."
- Jane Goodall In August 1963 she published her first article in National Geographic, "My Life Among Wild Chimpanzees." "Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference." - Jane Goodall Jane was diagnosed with a condition called prosopagnosia. Prosopagnosia is a memory impairment for faces and patterns. Although she cannot recognize people's faces, she has no trouble with remembering the faces of chimps and their names. Jane wanted to use her knowledge to help the world. She established "Wildlife Awareness Weeks," which was used to boost economies and provide jobs. She also formed a group called "Roots and Shoots." This was formed to teach kids around the world to care about all living creatures. Jane Goodall still works today by traveling around the world and speaking to people about her hope that one day all the problems on earth will someday be solved.
