Women's History Month: JGI Recognizes Amazing Female Scientists
Dr. Jane Goodall first arrived in what is today Tanzania’s Gombe National Park more than 50 years ago. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there continues to this day and is the longest-running study of great apes in the wild. Dr. Goodall’s many groundbreaking findings – that chimpanzees make and use tools, have long-lasting family bonds, eat meat, and wage war – redefined the relationship between humans and animals.
