Jane Goodall: a lifetime of passion and advocacy for animals and nature

Jane Goodall blows out 90 candles! To properly celebrate the monkey queen we want to retrace her exciting life and treasure her extraordinary teachings

The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves” is one of our favorite quotes from Jane Goodall, the British primatologist, anthropologist, and activist who turns 90 today. Her life has been marked by groundbreaking scientific research and boundless love for animals.

At just 26 years old, Jane followed her passion for studying wild animals by initiating her revolutionary research on chimpanzees in Gombe forest, Tanzania. Her discovery that chimpanzees make and use tools, previously thought to be a uniquely human trait, shook the scientific world and led to a redefinition of our relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom.

Today, she is a global reference for nature conservation, the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, now present in 28 countries, and a United Nations Messenger of Peace. She remains tirelessly committed to scientific research, environmental conservation, and sustainability education.

The Jane Goodall Institute’s environmental protection projects are carried out together with local communities through the “JGI Tacare-Take care” approach. This strategy ensures that every conservation activity, from research to communication, involves local populations for sustainable development processes.

Through the international sustainability education program “Roots & Shoots,” Jane Goodall inspires young people of all ages in over 65 countries worldwide to implement concrete projects in their own communities, creating positive change.
