Jane Goodall: A Biography
Publisher: Greenwood PressFormat: Hardcover
Explores the life of scientist and conservationist Jane Goodall. Even as a young girl, Jane Goodall was fascinated with animals. As she grew older, she would have the opportunity to begin her research on chimpanzees under the guidance of notable anthropologist Louis Leakey. With Leakey's encouragement and support, Goodall pursued her Ph.D. and began research at the Gombe Stream Reserve in Tanzania. It was there that she would make significant discoveries regarding chimpanzee behaviours. These discoveries, along with her tireless efforts for conservation, have led to numerous awards during her career of over 40 years. Goodall's life is revealed from her early days growing up in England and the influence of her mother, to her experiences living and observing chimpanzees in Africa and her undying efforts to promote conservation of wildlife. A timeline lists important events in her life, and a bibliography of print and electronic sources provides suggested readings for students and general readers. * Part of the Greenwood Biographies series *The first book on Jane Goodall for a school student readership
