Sometimes science can be an adventure. Take a look at Dr. Jane Goodall, an ethnologist, born in 1934. At 26, she started a journey that would change the world forever. She went to Tanzania to study wild chimpanzees. It was a risky job because she needed to get as close as possible her subjects. After years of persistence she managed to gain the chimpanzees trust and live amongst them.
By documenting the intelligence of animals, and with some timely coverage from National Geographic, she opened up a worldwide discussion on animal intelligence and animal ethics. Dr. Goodall established her own institute, became a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and to this day she is a leader in the science of animals, humans and nature.
