National Geographic Society and Jane Goodall Institute Partner to Produce “Becoming Jane,” Immersive Multimedia Exhibition on Legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall
“Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.” – Dr. Jane Goodall
Over the past century, groundbreaking discoveries have been made by global scientists that have significantly contributed to our understanding of the natural world and ourselves. One such scientist—Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace—has created an indelible legacy in the fields of science and conservation—a legacy celebrated in “Becoming Jane,” a new exhibition opening at the National Geographic Museum on Nov. 22, 2019. Produced in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, the exhibition explores Dr. Goodall’s life from her early years as an intrepid young woman with a dream to learn about animals in Africa, to her years establishing herself as a renowned scientist in Gombe, Tanzania to her present role as an activist, mentor and advocate for creating a better world for all life on Earth.
