Dr Goodall is a renowned British primatologist who documented the complex personalities of chimpanzees in Gombe Tanzania by establishing herself as a low ranking member of the tribe.
Her research revealed the striking similarities between chimps and humans in terms of dietary habits, emotional stability, the use of hunting tools and experiences of war and peace.
An active environmentalist, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute in 1977 to support wildlife research and the protection of natural habitats. She is the author of 26 books and has won many awards, medals and honorary doctorate degrees. In 2004 she received the title Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
