"Wherever I go, people say I give them hope. I can't slow down now, I can only speed up. I have a lot of work to do. Everyone must become more aware of what's going on. You, me, we all make an impact. We all make a difference."

- Dr. Jane Goodall

All About Jane
Early Life
As a child she observed native birds and animals, making notes and sketches, and read the literature of zoology and ethology
Jane's fascination with animal behavior began in early childhood
She dreamed of traveling to Africa to observe exotic animals in their natural habitats
Goodall attended the Uplands private school, receiving her school certificate in 1950 and a higher certificate in 1952
At age 18 she left school and found employment as a secretary at Oxford University
While studying in Tanzania she made three astonishing discoveries that would change aspects of physical anthropology:

1. Some chimps ate meat(thought to be only vegetarian)
2.Chimps used tools(used sticks to catch termites to eat)
3.Made their own tools(striped leaves from stems to use)

In her spare time, Jane worked at a London-based documentary film company to finance her trip to Africa
Each of these discoveries made the gap between intelligence and culture between Homo sapiens and Pan troglodytes smaller.
After months of trying to earn acceptance of the Chimpanzees; Jane used a systematic feeding method called the “banana club”. This allowed her to gain trust with more than 100 chimps and obtain a more thorough understanding of chimpanzee’s behavior. She imitated their behaviors and spent a lot of time with them, making discoveries of previously unobserved behaviors. Goodall noted that chimps have a social system with ritualized behaviors and communication methods, including a primitive language. Chimps also make long term family bonds and have a caste system with the most powerful males at the top.
She was a bright, motivated secretarial school graduate who had always loved animals

"Jane Goodall's work with chimpanzees represents one of the Western world's great scientific achievements." -- Stephen Jay Gould
