The site of Dr. Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking research, Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park has
changed our understanding of animals and altered our perception of what it means to be human.
Since 1960, Goodall and her peers have observed generations of the area’s chimpanzees. The
behaviors they recorded—chimpanzees making and using tools, hunting prey and even waging
warfare—exceeded the boundaries of what was previously thought possible, capturing worldwide
attention and galvanizing global conservation efforts.
