Throughout her life and career, Jane Goodall observed and recorded the habits and lives of wild chimpanzees while living in Gombe National Park and she is the world's foremost expert in chimpanzees and spent forty-five years studying them. With years of patient observation and thorough research, Jane became familiar with several chimpanzees and learned about their individual personalities and characteristics. She also studied the chimpanzees' social hierarchies and family dynamics. Jane Goodall's work greatly assisted the scientific community, wildlife conservationists, and environmental activists.





Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall Was Born On April 3, 1934


Jane Goodall was born Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall in London, England, to Mortimer and Vanne. She also had one sister that was four years older than her, Judith. Her father, Mortimer, was a telephone engineer who later became a race car driver for Aston-Martin, and her mother, Vanne, was a secretary who later became an author.

A nanny looked after Jane for the majority of her childhood, and her family moved several times, but she had a happy childhood. She loved animals from an early age and enjoyed exploring gardens and watching any animal she found, from butterflies to slugs.


Jane Goodall Was First Introduced To Chimpanzees When She Was A Baby


Jane loved animals from a very young age and was first introduced to chimpanzees when she was just one year old, and her father gave her a toy chimpanzee. The toy he gave her was in honor of a baby chimpanzee born at the London Zoo.

Jane loved the chimpanzee that she named Jubilee and carried the stuffed toy with her everywhere that she went. The toy inspired her love of animals and her dream to one day live in Africa and write about the animals that stay with her. Her mother always encouraged her dream. Jane still has Jubilee today.


Jane Observed Animals For Hours From A Young Age


From a very early age, Jane loved to observe any animal she came across and would just sit for hours watching them. As a little girl, she once sat in her family's chicken coop for five hours to watch a hen lay an egg.

After coming out of the chicken coop, she realized that her family had been frantically searching for her and even called the police to report her missing. "I was oblivious of the fact that no one had known where I was, and the whole household had been searching for me." ---- Jane Goodall.


Jane Had A Crush On Tarzan


Jane loved books about animals and Africa when she was little, especially the Tarzan series by Edgar Rice Burrough and the book The Story of Dr. Dolittle. She stated that she didn't like who Tarzan was romantically interested in and thought that she would be a better romantic match for the tree-swinging hero.

She stated she fell in love with Tarzan, but he married the wrong Jane. The books also inspired her dream to go to Africa and watch wild animals.


Jane Spent Her Late Teenage Years And Early Twenties Saving Cash To Go To Africa


Jane received a letter from a friend in 1956, inviting her to visit their family farm in Kenya, Africa. So she decided to quit her job in London and returned home to get a job as a waitress and save money. In order to save enough for her boat fare, she worked several jobs because this was her dream, and she was going to make it happen. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 03beff404a0e2cffffe5c37c6ea767c0

She had not gone to college yet because she couldn't afford the tuition. Before going to Africa, she worked as a secretary for Oxford University and a London filmmaking company.


Jane's First Trip To Africa Was When She Was 23


Jane made her first trip to Africa when she was twenty-three, and it had been her dream since a little girl. She went to visit a friend at their family farm but fell in love with the area and decided she wanted to stay.

So she traveled to Kenya by boat, and what she thought would be a three-year stay turned into more than two decades. She met a famous anthropologist who ended up hiring her to be his secretary, and that's where her dream really started.


Jane Met Louis Leakey While On Her Trip To Kenya In 1956


Jane met Dr. Louis Leakey on her first trip to Africa in 1956, and he soon realized that she would be the best person to study chimps in the Gombe Stream Reserve in Tanzania. Jane was the first female he hired to observe and study the chimps, and then later, he hired Diane Fossey and Birute Galdikas. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 6ebed19faf6117fa034b1b4f4af29014

Jane had no formal training, but after describing her love for animals and Africa, Dr. Leakey knew she was the woman for the job. Her first steps into Gombe Stream National Park in 1960 were extraordinary, and she started on day one just observing and being patient, hoping the chimps would accept her.


When She Traveled To Tanzania In 1960, She Had To Bring A Travel Partner


When Jane went to Tanzania to start her research, she was not allowed to travel there alone because it was deemed inappropriate, and the authorities mandated she had an escort. Jane took her mother with her to Tanzania, and after stopping for supplies and finding a cook, they set up camp at the Gombe Stream Reserve.

Jane's mother was with her for the first few months, and the two were alone in the untamed African bush. However, they eventually befriended fishermen and tribes of people who lived in the surrounding area.


Jane's Research Began In July 1960


Jane began her research in 1960, with her mother by her side for the first few months. They set up camp, and Jane would take her notebook and binoculars and quietly observe the chimpanzees for hours. She always took careful notes and was amazed at how they were able to think out solutions to problems.

In November, her mother returned to England, but Jane stayed there for more than two decades. Her research was extremely helpful and showed that chimpanzees are actually very similar to humans.


David Greybeard, The Chimp, Was The First To Accept Jane


After months of just observing, Jane was finally accepted by one chimp, that she named David Greybeard. David came to her camp to look around, and his acceptance opened the door for other chimps to accept her as well.


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. E03b639a9bfc9d6972d2da556e67a1d2

The other chimps became less timid, and David started bringing others to Jane's camp. Unfortunately, some of the chimps became hostile towards Jane initially, and there were three occasions where Jane had to remain calm in order to stay safe.


David Greybeard Was Jane's Favorite Chimpanzee


Jane's favorite chimpanzee was and is still David Greybeard, the very first chimp to accept her. He was easily recognizable by his silver facial hair and was a good friend to companion Goliath. He would often comfort Goliath by placing a hand on his head; he was tolerant and kind and stayed calm and gentle even while others grew aggressive.

David taught Jane about primate behavior and also helped her by bringing other chimps to her camp. Unfortunately, David died in 1968, during the pneumonia epidemic, but he was named one of Time Magazine's fifteen most influential animals that ever lived.


Flo, The Chimpanzee


Flo first arrived in Jane's camp in 1962, and she was the dominant matriarch who was always accompanied by her daughter Fifi and son Figan. Flo had an older son named Faben and eventually had two more babies named Flint and Flame. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. Fd405cb01e370bf2c69136e93a87a941
Photo Courtesy: [Bettmann/Contributor/Getty Images]


She was a strong and easygoing mother, always feeding them promptly and tenderly grooming them. She appeared frail but was tough as nails and easily recognizable by the notch in her right ear. Sadly, Flo and her son Flint died in 1971 while crossing a stream.


Figan, The Chimpanzee


Figan was Flo's son and became the alpha male and eventually became a strong and strategic leader. At first, he showed weakness as a leader and would rush to others for reassurance, but he used his ability to manipulate and deliberately fool others to his advantage. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. C3df06e3513b5c0d33f6d361714b6e5f
Photo Courtesy: [JaneGoodallInst/Twitter]


Jane stated that she observed Figan several times leading the others away from a food source but then would return on his own and claim the food for himself. His control over other males in the group sometimes faltered, but he always managed to regain authority.


Fifi, The Chimpanzee


Fifi was Flo's only daughter and eventually became a dominant matriarch. Over the years, she gave birth to nine babies named Freud, Frodo, Fanni, Flirt, Flirt, Flossi, Faustino, Ferdinand, and Furaha. She was only two years old when Jane first arrived at Gombe, and she was curious and vivacious. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 312b3e6f8429b20190d99be6183dc2f7
Photo Courtesy: [JaneGoodallInst/Twitter]


As she grew older, she did not have many friends other than her mother. Sadly, in 2004, Fifi disappeared and was later presumed dead; she was the last surviving chimpanzee from Jane's early days.


Freud, The Chimpanzee


Freud was Fifi's oldest son who became an alpha male when he was twenty-two. He was relatively peaceful as the alpha male and was a kind and gentle role model. When he was old, he lived out the rest of his years with his family but maintained somewhat of a distance from the rest of the community.

Before his death, he was the oldest male at Gombe and died at the age of forty-three in 2014, and he was one of the first chimpanzees to have had his entire life recorded by researchers.


Frodo, The Chimpanzee


Frodo was another one of Flo's sons and the brother to Freud, except he was a violent and unpopular bully. He was the largest and heaviest chimp at Gombe and could overthrow his brother using sheer force. He became famous after he attacked Gary Larson during his trip to Gombe.

"Very often, if two were playing, if they Frodo come along, they stopped playing. Because they knew as soon as he joined in, he'd hurt one of them." ---- Jane Goodall. Frodo died in 2013 after becoming sick.


Goblin, The Chimpanzee


Goblin was Melissa's son and was known for his persistence and stubborn nature. Jane was present for his birth and said when he was first born; his face appeared almost to twist like a hobgoblin, which led to his name. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. B501052cdd1f13a1027463101c70a8bb

Goblin would often wake up early to push other chimpanzees out of their nests while he was the alpha male from 1982 until 1990. He was the father of at least two of Fifi's children, and he died in 2004, the same year that Fifi disappeared.


Gremlin, The Chimpanzee


Gremlin was born in 1970 to Melissa, was the most successful mother at Gombe, and was another one of Jane's favorites that she loved. She had five children, with the most famous being her twins Golden and Glitter.

She always showed an affinity for mothering and demonstrated maternal instincts from a young age while helping to take care of her brother. She is a warm, sweet, and kind-hearted chimp that even showed interest in 'adopting' her grandchildren Godot and Gossamer; sadly, neither one of the infants survived.


Golden And Glitter, The Chimpanzees


Twins are very rare with chimpanzees. Golden and Glitter are twin girls that were born in 1998 and are one out of only three sets to be born in Gombe. Most of the time, twins don't survive past infancy because of attacks from other chimps or insufficient care from the mother, among other things.

When Golden and Glitter were born, Gaia helped Gremlin care for the twins. Golden is social, brave, and likes to explore, as where Glitter is more careful, shy, and inventive. They separated from their mother when they were six years old and have stuck together, relying on one another for comfort and care.


Sparrow, The Chimpanzee


Sparrow is a female and is the oldest chimp at Gombe at sixty-three years old. She has successfully raised several offspring, is strong, and still has one son, Sinbad, that travels with her.

She is somewhat of a loner and keeps to herself, and she immigrated to the study community in 1971. She is the undisputed matriarch of the 'S Family.' She's getting old, but you can still see her spirit in her wise and honest eyes.


One Of Jane's First Realizations Was That Chimps Experience Emotions


Jane realized very quickly that chimps are capable of feeling a wide range of emotions, including happiness, empathy, and joy. They look out for each other, help when needed, and they have also been known to come to the aid of humans who have been threatened. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. Db4bf76c17abc04d9f546fe14226cf34

Chimpanzees respect their elders, and the elders pass down their knowledge. Chimps are sociable, and when one is feeling stressed or upset, others will often groom or hug them. One of the deepest bonds for a chimpanzee is its bond with its mother, just like for humans.


She Received A Sponsorship From National Geographic


When Jane went back to Africa, after her first term at Cambridge, a photographer from the National Geographic magazine went to observe her and the chimps. The man that went was Baron Hugo van Lawick, and he followed her through the jungle and took pictures as she worked. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 3498824fb2f9005eefaab68aa0c593db

Hugo went to Africa in 1962, and his film and photos were first broadcast on American television in 1965. Jane and Hugo ended up falling in love and getting married in 1964, so the assignment lasted longer than anticipated.


Jane Learned That Chimpanzees Eat Meat


While researching the chimpanzees, Jane discovered that they are not vegetarians, as was previously thought. She watched them eat termites and hunt smaller primates and sometimes hunt larger mammals in groups. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 69af72602ce865bc9c647d873c47cbde

One day, she noticed David climbing a tree and eating a piglet, and she witnessed a hunt where a group of chimps caught and killed a monkey. She also learned that chimps communicate through over twenty different sounds.


Jane Learned That Chimpanzees Make And Use Tools


When chimpanzees are faced with problems, they use their highly evolved problem-solving skills to come up with solutions. Jane discovered that chimps could make and use tools when she observed David stripping the leaves off of a twig then sticking it into a hole in a termite mound. He left it there for a minute and then pulled it out and ate the termites that were on the twig.

He used the twig as a tool to get the termites, which showed his ability to modify an object for a specific purpose. They have been able to adapt to the degradation of their habitats by carrying out raids on crops at night and crossing roads only during safe periods.


She Was Only The Second Researcher To Attempt To Study Chimps In The Wild


Before Jane's expedition, there had only ever been one attempt to study wild chimpanzees. The first scientist that studied the chimps had a trail of twenty-two porters. Jane has written fifteen books, published eleven children's books, and participated in twenty films by National Geographic, Animal Planet, and the BBC.

Jane did her work only accompanied by her mother and one assistant and pioneered the study of chimpanzees in the wild. She was able to attract the chimps closer at first with bananas so that she could observe them.


Jane Graduated With A Ph.D. In Ethology


Dr. Leakey was able to convince Cambridge University to let Jane into a special program to receive her college degree. She graduated in 1966 and became Dr. Jane Goodall with a Ph.D. in Ethology. Jane was one of the first Ph.D. students to be accepted into the university without a college degree.


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 09813cbd0ce9b4ecd1fedd133d515c8b

Her thesis was titled "Behaviour of the Free-Ranging Chimpanzee." Since graduating, she's earned more diplomas than could be listed and honorary degrees from almost forty universities in fifteen different countries.


Some Scientists Disapproved That Jane Named The Chimpanzees Rather Than Assigning Them Numbers


Goodall's work did experience controversy when some scientists disapproved that she gave names to the chimpanzees instead of assigning numbers. They also criticized her for using feeding stations to attract the chimps because they said she was disrupting natural feeding patterns and encouraging aggression in the chimps. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 7f3b13030b51ad22daa96e2e970cf13d

Nevertheless, Jane cared for the chimpanzees and saw them as more than just numbers in a book; they were living creatures with feelings. It was because of her close relationship with the chimps that she was able to be so close and observe so many interesting and beneficial facts.


Jane Published Her First Book, My Life Among Wild Chimpanzees In 1963


Jane's first published book about her research was titled My Life with the Chimpanzees. The book covers her ventures in Africa, observing the wild chimpanzees. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. B7afbb70b839b055a6bccd46ebdf5351

During her expeditions, she got to know a group of chimps and braved many dangers, all while learning that they are intelligent animals whose lives bear a surprising resemblance to our own. She writes about her everyday experiences with the animals, and she became a tireless advocate for animals and the planet.


Jane Married Baron Hugo In 1964 But Divorced In 1974


Jane and Baron Hugo married in 1964 while working together in Africa with the chimpanzees. Hugo had been there photographing and filming Jane and the chimpanzees, and eventually, as Jane's work grew, they had to hire more assistants.

The couple lived in Tanzania together for several years, and they published a book together in 1972 titled Grub: The Bush Baby. The book was about their only son named Hugo but nicknamed Grub. Jane and Hugo divorced in 1974 but remained friends.


In 1964, Night Rebels Kidnapped Four Of Jane's Students


One night in 1964, a group of rebels from Congo came over the lake and kidnapped four of Jane's students and took them away to an unknown location. Jane and her group didn't know where they were taken or who had taken them. The students were all eventually released alive, but it changed things around there.

"In 1975, when my students were kidnapped by rebels, I was accused of hiding instead of trying to save them and not giving enough money for their ransom. I wasn't believed. After the whole thing, Gombe was no longer the oasis of peace in an increasingly turbulent world. Even after all the students were released, it took a long time before I could hear the sound of a boat engine at night without a recurrence of the terrible fear." ----- Jane Goodall.


Chimpanzees Got Sick With Polio In 1966


In 1966, as Polio swept through Gombe, both the chimps and human populations took a hard hit. At that time, Jane was pregnant with her son, and she didn't realize that it was Polio and that the chimpanzees could get it. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. A11e8b9961eb3a24e2ff055143708203

Sadly, the chimps could get it, and one day, Jane saw one of the chimps coming in, dragging both paralyzed legs and was unable to move. Others also became sick, and that's when they realized they were facing a Polio epidemic. Jane was able to stop the epidemic among the chimps by hiding an oral polio vaccine in bananas.


In 1967, Jane's Son Hugo Was Born


Jane's son was born in 1967, and his name was Hugo; however, he was nicknamed and always referred to as Grub. He was raised with his mom and dad in Gombe with the chimpanzees. Jane started taking him to meet the wild chimpanzees when he was just an infant, but she always had him in a protective cage just to be safe.

As an adult, he returned to Tanzania after school and worked in the African country as a boat builder. He is also an animal rights activist, and his children are nature and wildlife conservation enthusiasts as well.


Jane Married Derek Bryceson In 1975


Derek Bryceson was the head of the Tanzanian National Park, and not long after Jane met Derek, they were married. They were married in 1975, but sadly, Derek died from cancer five years later in 1980. Derek always took measures to protect Jane's research project.

Jane found comfort with her family, friends, and her time in Gombe, but she never married again. Nevertheless, she managed to stay optimistic, hopeful, and determined, which she wrote about in her book titled Reason for Hope.


The Jane Goodall Institute Of Canada Was Established In 1977


Jane Goodall and a friend started the Jane Goodall Institute Canada in 1977, and she created it to help people understand the importance of preserving the forests and the animals who live in them. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 3caa6594ae499c3221653c8806eab2cd

Her main goal is to increase Canadian awareness of and compassion for endangered animals, with a focus on chimpanzees. She wants to increase support for habitat and species conservation. Jane's institute supports research and efforts to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.


Jane Wrote Through A Window In Honor Of Her Late Husband Derek


After Jane's husband Derek passed away from cancer, Jane dedicated her book titled Through A Window to his loving memory. The book is a dramatic saga of thirty years in the wild with Chimpanzees, and it is one of the most important scientific works ever published.

Even though Jane was devastated by the loss of her husband, she used that to drive herself harder in her dedication to the study and conservation of the chimpanzees.


In 1991, Jane Founded The Roots And Shoots Foundation


Jane founded the Roots and Shoots program after a meeting with a group of sixteen teenagers on her back porch, where they discussed what they could do to help the environment, animals, and the global human community. 


INFORMATION VINE * The Inspiring Life of The Chimpanzee Lady Jane Goodall *. 71434474c977c4a01ff797c257bf4c07

Roots and Shoots program was founded to educate the youth on the environment, and the program shows them how to follow their passions. The program started with just twelve Tanzanian high school students, and now it can be found in over fifty countries around the world.


Her Book In The Shadow Of Man Became Extremely Popular


Jane's book titled In the Shadow of Man became so popular that the chimps she worked with became internationally and individually known. In fact, when Flo died, the London Times printed an obituary for her.

In the book, Jane wrote about her first ten years at Gombe, and the paperback edition contains eighty photographs and an introduction by Stephen Jay. The book became a best-seller all over the world.


Jane Never Had Any Formal Training When She Started Her Research


When Jane went to Africa and started her research, she did not have any formal training, but she saw that as a good thing. She was free of the trappings of orthodoxy and traditional etiology. She also was able to get closer to the chimps because she traveled lightly, therefore not scaring them away. She did eventually get a Ph.D. so that she would be taken seriously.

"When, in the early 1960s, I brazenly used such words as childhood, adolescence, motivation, excitement, and mood, I was much criticized. Even worse was my crime of suggesting that chimps had personalities. I was ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman animals and was thus guilty of that worst of ethological sins, anthropomorphism." ----- Jane Goodall.


The Way The Chimpanzees Mothered Influenced How She Mothered Her Son


Similar to humans, chimpanzees mature slowly and fully depend on their mothers throughout childhood and adolescence. Jane stated that the presence of many chimpanzee mothers influenced how she raised her son Hugo.

The chimps taught her to be supportive and showed her what it meant to be a good mother. Flo was a good mother, and her children were confident adults that still loved their mother. However, Passion's children were neglected, so they became less sure of themselves and didn't have a close relationship with their mom.


She really Lived Among The Many Chimpanzees In Africa


Jane spent hours and hours in the rainforest alone with the wild chimps. She said she felt a close connection with the spirit of nature, and she really lived among the chimps in Africa.

She started out working alone, trying to gain the trust of the chimps, and eventually, she was accepted and was the first to ever sit among wild chimps. Her patience is why she was able to achieve what so many others didn't. She was able to become part of the chimpanzees, and they cared for her as much as she cared for them.
