About Jane Goodall
How Jane Goodall's Career Took Off
Dr. Jane Goodall's Belief
"I could have learned a whole lot more about fossils and become a palaeontologist. But my childhood dream was as strong as ever–somehow I must find a way to watch free, wild animals living their own, undisturbed lives–I wanted to learn things that no one else knew, uncover secrets through patient observation.
'I wanted to come as close to talking to animals as I could."
Dr. Jane observes two chimpanzees creating tools to extract termites out of their mounds. This became one of Jane's most important discoveries. Until then only humans were thought to create tools. Upon Dr. Leakey hearing of Janes observation he stated "Now we must redefine tool, redefine Man, or accept chimpanzees as humans."
