Celebrated chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall speaks at Western

The event, presented by Docs4GreatApes, is open to the public and all proceeds will support the work of the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada and Docs4GreatApes.
Hosted by the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Dr. Goodall will reflect on the extraordinary change the world has seen since she first began her research of chimpanzees in 1960, share stories from the past 50 years, and discuss her reasons for hope in these complex times.
Dr. Goodall, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada and UN Messenger of Peace, began her landmark study of chimpanzees in Tanzania in June 1960. Her extraordinary work at the Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Reserve enlightened world audiences to the complexity and richness of chimpanzee communities, and forced many to reconsider humans’ relationship to other species and what it means to be human.
Dr. Goodall’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A session followed by a brief media availability and book signing.
