FC: My Wild Adventures
1: May 1957 It all started when my good friend, Clo Mange, invited me on a trip to her family's farm in Kenya. It was there I met my mentor, Dr. Louis Leakey. I dug up fossils with him and his wife and learned a great deal about nature. | (Study Corner-Biography)
2: My Trip to Gombe
3: July 16, 1960 My mother and I arrived to the Gombe Chimpanzee Reserve in Tanzania. The authorities wouldn't allow me to explore the forests myself, so I brought along my mom. There weren't any cameras back then, so I had with me my tape recorder, typewriter, and journal to record my observations of the chimps. The chimps took awhile to warm up to me, but after a lot of patience, I was able to approach them. I thank Dr. Leakey for offering me the opportunity to come to Tanzania to study the chimps.! | (Study Corner-Biography)
4: This chimp is making a fishing rod out of a twig in order to catch termites. | My Wild Discoveries
5: October 1960 While watching the chimps, I saw that they ate meat and also hunted for meat. This led me to the conclusion that chimps are not primarily vegetarian as everyone thought they were. One day, I saw David Greybeard and Goliath (I give the chimps names) stripping the leaves off of twigs to make tools for catching termites. This may not seem like a big deal, but scientists have distinguished man from animal by using tools. And now that I have discovered chimps too use tools, we must redefine man. | (Study Corner-Biography)
6: Gombe Stream Research Centre | Me and Hugo van Lawick started the Gombe Stream Research Centre. It's a place for students to come and observe the wild chimpanzees just like I did. | (Study Corner-Biography)
7: During my studies at the Gombe National Park, I learned about the many different chimpanzee calls that chimps use to communicate with each other. Chimps can also communicate with each other by the faces they make or the way they touch each other. | Chimp calls: "Wraaa" = Fear "Huu"= Puzzled Food "aaa" call= enjoying the food Crying=Distress/Rage Pant-hoot=Excitement | (Study Corner-Chimp Calls)
8: Through all my travels I've learned so much and I want to spread my knowledge to the world.
9: In 1977, I founded the Jane Goodall Institute.The goal of this institute is to provide education and research for the public in order to give global understanding of great apes and preserve their habitats. The Institute also provides a youth program called Roots & Shoots. This program gives children the chance to learn about local and global problems and how they can take action towards them. The youth give me great hope for the future. In 1994, I also founded the TACARE program which is a program that improves the lives of people around the world while also promoting conservation. | (About JGI)
