Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE

Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace

Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace is world renowned for her pioneering research on wild chimpanzees. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share.

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall travelled to Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world a remarkable window into humankind’s closest living relatives. Since then, Dr. Jane Goodall has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment.

In 1977 she established the Jane Goodall Institute, also active in Italy, which is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.  The Institute is widely recognized for innovative, community-centred conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the global environmental and humanitarian youth programme for young people of all ages.
