Jane Goodall: Inspiring Animal Lovers
Jane Goodall was born on April 3, 1934 in London, England to Mortimer H. Morris-Goodall (a businessman) and Margaret M. Joseph (a novelist). Jane’s favorite toy as a child was a stuffed chimp named Jubilee. She was a brilliant student, loved animals, and was often more interested in being outdoors than in the classroom. Jane is famous for her research on the behavior of chimpanzees, which began in Africa and continues to this day. Jane is also known for her work on animal welfare and conservation. To date, Jane has won over 80 awards for her work!
