Venue: UCI Student Center, Pacific Ballroom

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is today Tanzania, and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.

Today, the Jane Goodall Institute continues Dr. Goodall’s pioneering research and is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots(, the global environmental and humanitarian program for youth of all ages, which has groups in more than 120 countries.

UC Irvine and the Center for Living Peace welcome Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace. Her talk will follow introductions by UC Irvine Chancellor Michael V. Drake, M.D., and Kelly Thornton Smith, founder of the Center for Living Peace.
