The third lecture in the IUBS Webinar Series will be delivered by Dr Jane Goodall, DBE. An ethologist and environmentalist, with ongoing research spanning more than six decades, Dr Goodall is a pioneer in studying the behavior, social organization, and cognitive abilities of chimpanzees. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace.
In this webinar, Dr. Jane Goodall will talk about the research that she began more than 60 years ago, which is ongoing today into the lives of the wild chimpanzees in Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. Her pioneering work has changed the way we look at wildlife and conservation activities across the world. The TACARE programme has empowered the communities living around Gombe to become JGI’s partners in conservation and is being replicated in other African countries. Dr Goodall will speak about her early work, how it changed the way we think about both chimpanzees and ourselves and about the many programmes established by the Jane Goodall Institute that are working to sustain both wildlife and human communities.
Please note that this webinar is at 1:30 PM GMT on April 27th, 2021 .
