Description

Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace, started as an intrepid young woman with a dream to learn about animals in Africa. Dr. Goodall traveled to what is now Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park and immersed herself by observing chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Her work studying the lives of chimpanzees in the wild captured the imagination of the world. Rather than seeing the animals as subjects, she came to know them as individuals with personalities and emotions—a notion once rejected by the scientific world, yet now considered revolutionary. Today, in her current role as an activist, mentor and advocate for creating a better world for all life on Earth, she inspires us all. Her story—one of fearless determination, curiosity, the pursuit of knowledge and a passionate love of the natural world—has resonated with generations of people around the globe.

 IN THIS EXHIBITION, YOU'LL: 

  • Be introduced to Dr. Goodall's extraordinary work and encounter digitally rendered chimpanzees in a multiscreen experience.
  • Envision yourself as a scientist as you explore a life-size replica of Dr. Goodall's research tent.
  • Be immersed in Tanzania's Gombe Stream National Park.
  • Hear from a hologram of Dr. Goodall as she shares her memories in Gombe and recalls her thoughts, feelings, impressions, and lessons learned while living among chimpanzees.
  • Join Dr. Goodall, the Jane Goodall Institute, and National Geographic Society, in an effort to ensure a more sustainable future for us all.
