Happy 83rd birthday to pioneering British primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall! Dr. Goodall is known worldwide for her animal welfare and conservation efforts and her study of chimpanzee behavior. She has been named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire and a UN Messenger of Peace. The Jane Goodall Institute is a non-profit that works to increase global awareness and understanding about the natural world, and in particular the lives and habitats of primates. Goodall still travels to Gombe at least once a year and actively encourages the involvement of youth around the world in conservation work, particularly through her “Roots and Shoots” program.
