Jane Goodall started studying chimps in 1960, at the Kasakela chimpanzee community in Gombe Stream National Park, in Tanzania.
Jane Goodall, a world-renowned biologist known for her work with chimpanzees, has been studying in her field for quite some time. She first began studying a population of chimps in Tanzania in 1960. Today, she continues studying and advocating for chimps and the natural world, travelling hundreds of days of the year and working to promote awareness.
Jane Goodall began her first study of chimpanzees in 1960. She arrived by boat to Gombe to begin the study with her mother, who was there as a companion into the wilderness. Two native scouts and a cook also accompanied her, all with the assumption that the work would last 30 years. Previous to this she had been working with Dr. Louis Leaky with his studies in Africa. It was he who encouraged her to study wild chimpanzees in the first place, because of their close link to humans. Goodall still works closely with chimps today, and has become a world-famous researcher and advocate since her first study 50 years ago.
