Happy Mother's Day

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we wanted to share two of our favorite archival photos of Dr. Jane with her mother, Vanne. Dr. Goodall always credits her “amazing mother” for her success. Growing up, her mother encouraged her by saying, “If you really want something, and if you work hard, take advantage of the opportunities, and never give up, you will somehow find a way.” To learn more about Dr. Jane’s early life and her inspiring mother, please visit http://www.janegoodall.org/janes-story.
