Tonight Jane Goodall joins close friends and donors at The Royal Institution Library in London to celebrate 50 years of groundbreaking research at Gombe. Supporters will be asked to join the Jane Goodall Foundation in ensuring the next 50 years of Jane’s vision is secured through their financial contributions.
Onsea House Tanzania is contributing in the 50 years celebrations by offering a stay at Onsea House in Arusha for the auction.
Half a century has elapsed since Goodall leapt to prominence with her remarkable study of chimpanzees.
Harvested from patient observation of a chimpanzee colony in Gombe, Tanzania, her insights smashed stereotypes of chimps as circus animals or cuddly toys.
The primates were revealed as smart and socially complex, able to organise their community and use tools: in other words, they were a lot like us. The divide between Homo sapiens and Pan troglodytes became blurred forever.
