Dr. Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace is a world-renowned ethologist and environmentalist inspiring greater action on behalf of the natural world. The Jane Goodall Institute UK aims to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment we all share. In this landmark London Real episode, Dr Goodall joins Brian Rose to discuss her work, career and incredible impact that she has had on our understanding of other species.

Best known for her groundbreaking research with wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania, Jane Goodall’s contributions to the understanding of animal behaviour and her conservation efforts have made her a globally recognised figure.

Dr. Jane Goodall’s journey began in the early 1960s when she embarked on a pioneering research project studying wild chimpanzees. Her immersive and long-term study at Gombe provided unprecedented insights into the social and familial behaviours of these primates.

One of the most significant discoveries from Goodall’s research was observing chimpanzees using tools. Prior to her work, tool use was considered a distinctive human trait. Goodall’s observations challenged this notion, revolutionising our understanding of the cognitive abilities of non-human animals.

Dr. Goodall’s work expanded beyond research to encompass conservation and animal welfare. In 1977, she established the Jane Goodall Institute, dedicated to wildlife research, education, and conservation. The institute’s Roots & Shoots program empowers young people to become environmental stewards.

Dr. Goodall has authored numerous books, including her autobiography “My Life with the Chimpanzees,” and has become a compelling speaker on issues related to conservation, animal welfare, and environmental sustainability.

Recognised as a UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Goodall has travelled extensively, advocating for conservation, ethical treatment of animals, and sustainable practices. She has engaged with audiences worldwide, inspiring individuals to take action for a better planet.

The Jane Goodall Institute has played a pivotal role in educating the public about environmental issues. Through various programs and initiatives, the institute promotes awareness, conservation efforts, and sustainable practices.

Jane Goodall has received numerous awards and honours for her contributions to science and conservation, including the Kyoto Prize, the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science, and the French Legion of Honour.

Dr. Goodall’s advocacy extends to preserving chimpanzee habitats. Her efforts have emphasised the importance of protecting ecosystems to ensure the survival of not only chimpanzees but also the myriad of species that share their habitats.

Jane Goodall has been featured in various documentaries, bringing her work and insights to a broader audience. Her appearances in films like “Jane” and “Chimpanzee” have helped raise awareness about the importance of conservation.

Dr. Goodall’s legacy goes beyond her scientific contributions; she serves as an inspiration for aspiring scientists, conservationists, and individuals committed to making a positive impact on the planet.

Jane Goodall’s remarkable career and tireless efforts in the realms of primatology, conservation, and education have left an indelible mark on our understanding of the natural world and our responsibility to protect it for future generations.
