CNN Connector of the Day: Jane Goodall


Dr. Jane and the Necklace

As Jane travels the world - and airport after airport - she meets many people along the way. Often the interaction starts when someone whispers "is that really Jane Goodall?" and Jane responds with a cheerful "Hello! How are you?"

A Special Drawing for Jane

Jane received a very special picture from a member of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program recently.  

The young artist, Isabella from Florida, had this to say about her drawing:

A Visit to the Jane Goodall Research Center

This past October, as part of Jane's autumn 2009 United States lecture tour, she visited the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and the Jane Goodall Research Center on campus.

The Jane Photo of the Week

With Jane on a perpetual world speaking tour and traveling to every corner of the globe, you can imagine what  a variety of "Jane in action" shots we have ! To showcase some appealing images, every week we will be featuring one special photo of Jane. The new feature will be called "The Jane Photo of the Week."

Too "Chimpanzee-Specific"?

Jane's message really travels. In the Jane Goodall Institute offices we receive emails from people around the world who are inspired by Jane's work. A few months ago, we received an original cartoon by an artist in India named Harsha Nagaraju. Harsha, a Jane fan, was motivated to draw the cartoon after seeing several TV shows about Jane. He wanted to point out that Jane's research is about chimpanzees, while having a little fun too!

Behind the Scenes at The Daily Show

Jane is no stranger to television interviews. Over her 50 years of work, she has appeared on a variety of of well-known, traditional news programs. But this past November, Jane let her hair down -- so to speak -- to reach a new audience by appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the popular news satire program on Comedy Central.

Shortly before Thanksgiving, Jane was in Spain for several days to promote the work of the Jane Goodall Institute - Spain and Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program. In between speeches and events, Jane made time to visit the Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Seville (named after the Spanish-Peruvian politician) to receive an honorary degree.
