Jane Goodall has been the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees for decades, thanks to her exhaustive 45-year study on the famialial and social interactions of our primate cousins that she conducted in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania.
Her work at the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada goes beyond the study of chimpanzees, though. Established in Montreal in 1994, the institute aims to increase awareness and compassion for the plight of all endangered animals, as well as to train and support environmental and humanitarian programs and initiatives.
