Dr. Jane Goodall
Dr. Jane Goodall, Primatologist, Ethnologist, and Anthropologist
When she was young, Jane's mother "used to say, 'If you really want something, and you work hard, and you take advantage of opportunities and you never give up, you will find a way.' That's the message I've been able to bring to children, particularly girls, all around the world. It has been very, very useful to me."
As the world's leading chimpanzee expert, Dr. Goodall also founded the Jane Goodall Institute which promotes conservation efforts around the world.
