Jane Goodall talks about Chimps

Last week, Dr. Jane read 'Chimpanzee Family', taking you inside the world of our closest living relatives. This week, she'll be discussing elephants. Get read to by a legend.

In 1960, a 26-year-old Jane Goodall traveled to Gombe, Tanzania to begin the first formal study of wild chimpanzees. Her discoveries changed the way we understand these fellow great apes and our relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom. Her observation that chimpanzees make and use tools revolutionized the field of animal behavior, challenging the "sharp line" separating humans from other animals. This book, 'Chimpanzee Family' provides an intimate portrait of a group of chimpanzees. Follow along as Jane takes you into their lives and you learn more about this incredible species.
