The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is mourning the passing of Dr. Toshisada Nishida. Dr. Nishida, a leader in Japanese primatology, began studying the behavior of the wild chimpanzees of the Mahale Mountains in Tanzania in 1965, just five years after Dr. Goodall embarked upon her pioneering field study at what is today Gombe National Park. In 1985, Dr. Nishida led the effort to establish the Mahale Mountains as a Tanzanian national park.
