Before Jane Goodall, other animals, even chimps, our closest relatives were thought to be stupid and completely unlike humans. Goodall's groundbreaking work observing primates, and getting to know them on a detailed and emotional level revealed the deep inner lives of these wonderful creatures.
Today is Jane Goodall's 80th birthday. This tribute shows some of the incredible work Goodall has done in her life, and at the end, you will see that she is still an inspiration in her old age.
Happy birthday, Jane. The world is a much better place because of you.
