Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees
Introduction

One of the world’s best known animal researchers surveys the results of more than three decades of painstaking study in JANE GOODALL’S WILD CHIMPANZEES.

When legendary scientist Jane Goodall first came to Tanzania more than 35 years ago to study the chimpanzees of Gombe National Park, the vast, flourishing forest teemed with apes. Today, the park is ravaged by logging, and home to only about 40 chimps, who live confined to a few protected square miles.

But the chimp population in Gombe remains abuzz with drama and intrigue. Of the many chimps Ms. Goodall got to know when she began her studies in 1960, just one — Fifi — is alive today. And Fifi’s two eldest sons, Freud and Frodo, are now locked in a power struggle over the title of top-ranking male, a conflict that is dominating life in the community. Buy the DVD. Online content for Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees was originally posted March 1996.

  • Alissa

    I love monkeys/ chimpanzees and how she can bond with them so easly

  • lissa

    u rock jane goodall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Special K

    If Jane could move the apes to Spain
    They would be protected legislatively,
    And the government of that country,
    To their well-being would see.

    We have read in the LATimes
    That the future of apes is closely tied
    To improvement of living conditions for humans–
    Who also near the Gombe abide.

    It is good to know, in these troublous times,
    That there’s still some who cares for apes–
    Creatures of near-human qualities,
    Capable even of social and personal jackanapes.

    These latter capabilites are also exhibited
    By humans who to the U.S. presidency aspire–
    And from time to time, while campaigning,
    Say things for which they’re called “Liar!”.

    And frequently don’t make much sense
    Or at times sound exceedingly strange–
    To other humans; and to chimps in the Gombe
    (Should they be within hearing range).

    All in all, by and large, overall,
    It’s good that Jane is bringing hope and cheer
    To Fifi and her sons Freud and Frodo,
    As our national E-Day draws near.

  • Special K

    One should avoid excessive reliance
    On what passes (in some quarters) for science,
    And treasure Freud and Frodo
    Quite alive (unlike the unfortunate Dodo)–
    And with all Fifi’s motherly demands in compliance.

  • Blossom

    i want to thank jane goodall for all of her help with the chimps. she really is an awesome person. we should all be like her and care for all the animals on this planet. just think, if you were another animal besides a human, how would you feel if no one cared for you? that would make me mad. us humans need to think about everybody else instead of themselves.

  • Shaee

    That pic is soooo cute. It shows a mothers love!

  • Christine

    My 10 year old daughter randomly chose Jane Goodall for a biography report in her 4th grade class. She just “loves” monkeys and thinks they are “so cute”. She didn’t put much effort into the report at first (always looking for the easy way out!)but once she started paying attention and realized what Jane’s cause is all about, she saw herself through Jane’s story and ended up writing a 4 pg. report, even though only 1 page was required… Thank you for inspiring my daughter (and the rest of the world, too!)

  • Kaylee-Ann Coram

    Hi Jane,

I am very interested in working in this field and can’t wait for the opportunity to learn as much as I possibly can about all the wonderful creatures.

  • Jennifer

    I am a huge fan of Jane Goodall!
    For school we had to do a speech on who we most admire, I did my speech on Jane of course and got 19/2 out of 20! I was so proud of it.
    I admire Jane very much and love the work she is doing. Also I was born on the year of the monkey, lol, so I myself act like one at times. I am an avid lover of monkeys, theyre my favourite animal, all apes have such an amazing personality and are quite entertaining to watch on the Discovery channel, when I watch it with my mum we laugh at the vast similarities the chimps have to our family!
    Keep up he great work Jane.
    Much Love xox
    Jenny

  • Akshaya

    You are the best, Jane Goodall! I just love how you are so tolerant about animals, and I want to help them out too! Plus, I want to be a great author like you are, and even though I’m only 11-yrs-old, I’m planning on publishing a fictional novel of my own (with animal characters) with the aid of many teachers. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I’m a big fan of you and wildlife. Good-bye!

  • Alice

    It lifts my heart to know that there’s someone out there that can bond so easily with Chimpanzees and is working so passionately to save them. Thank You Jane Goodall!

  • Sarah

    Thanks to you, Jane Goodall, the world is slowly learning that such beautiful creatures should not be slaughtered mercilessly. I have a question for you, too: right now, there are a lot of children that have autism, and can’t communicate very well, and therefore may not be able to marry. Have you seen similar symptoms in chimpanzees? Thanks, Sarah :D

  • Delanie S.

    i am so glad you love monkeys, you and that monkey in that picture look AWESOME!:) i am so glad that you love the wild life and that you love to work with animals that is so cool geting to have a job like that. i am in the 6th grade and i have to do a poem about you i am excited!!!!!!!!!!!:) i hope you liked working with monkeys i love animals!!!!!:)

    Jane Goodall Rocks!!!! It’s that she cares about the well being for Chimps. A lot of people dont

  • sati

    Jane Goodall is my hero. She is the only person in the UNIVERSE who thinks about animals in the same way I do. Whenever I talk about my opinions even casually everyone else thinks I’m crazy. I said something about how I didn’t like how lab rats were treated, then someone stared at me and said, “whatever, it’s just a rat.” That made me so mad! Luckily I managed to keep my temper… I wish I had Jane Goodall’s patience, she is at peace with herself. I am not. I have a huge need to talk to her in person…

    Jane,
    Your amazing! This isn’t the first I’ve heard of you though, I watched you at your orphanage on Animal Planet. It takes a very kind, caring, and loving person to achieve what you have. You also have some very high standards for being the kindest person ever.

    Thank you for your inspiration.

  • Pam

    My dear friend, Stephane came from Africa and he gave you his young female chimpanzee many years ago. I know he would love to hear from you about how his “baby girl” did in your care. I’m sure it was a wonderful life for her.

  • DragonLord

    I love your work Jane. May I ask how in the world do you bond with chimpanzees so quick like that? Apparently these 38 years of work has really payed off! Signed

  • DragonLord

    Hello again Mrs. Goodall. I had a quick question for you. Do you think that having monkeys as pets is abbuse to them? Or would you agree with the whole idea of having a monkey as your pet?
    Just wanted to know, Thanks DragonLord

  • Volleyball.Foreva

    Im writting a paper on you for English it is going to be 3 pages long atleast because that is what is required. You have inspired me so much.

If you have time if you would email me stuff about you so i can put it in my paper im writting. Thanks Volleyball.Forever

  • Jana Apergis

    Hi! My young daughter wants to be a “monkey saver” when she grows up. She’s nursed this idea for almost two years. We are exploring various takes on this. Does Jane do any public speaking still? We are located in CT and wondered is she has any engagements scheduled for Boston or Connecticut that might be interesting for a 10 year old child. Do you have recommendations for colleges that have strong programs in primate studies or zoology?
    Thank you for your time!

  • Katie

    I am a big fan of you Jane Goodall!! I am doing a wax museum for my school. That means that I have to dress completely like you, and have to act like you! So could you maybe help me by just giving me some facts about you. I was looking for a lot about your childhood stories and your about your parents. If not it is o.k.

    From your biggest fan, Katie

  • DrNOSA

    Prosopagnosia could conceivably be caused by obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A study by Macey, P., et al. SLEEP; 31(7): July 2008 revealed multiple white matter ’strokes’ in a group of patients with OSA. These lesions, not seen on CT, standard MRI, PET or SPECT scans, were revealed by a relatively new technique called diffusion tensor imagining (DTI), a methodology added to 3 Tesla MRI. In the study of forty one patients with OSA, the color-coded lesions were scattered through out their brains with a predilection for the frontal lobes. Such a lesion could potentially occur in the right posterior temporo-parietal-occipital region giving rise to the inability to recognize familiar faces. A sleep test should be done as part of the evaluation of this disorder, followed by treatment if positive for OSA.

    Fantastic job right here. I genuinely enjoyed what you had to say. Keep going because you definitely bring a new voice to this subject. Not many people would say what youve said and still make it interesting. Well, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see more of this from you.

  • http://www.hearinglosscomensation.com hearing loss claim

    I must say, as very much as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a excellent grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so a lot. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

    And so the Chinaman and the bro’ from da’ hood were walking along the lake shore. The Chinaman picked up a smooth stone and skipped it across the water and the stone hit the water three times and the lake said “Pong Ling Mao” and the black man asked the Chinaman what it was. The Chinaman said it was a magic lake and by skipping a stone across it, the lake would tell you the name of your grandfather. The black man skipped a stone over the lake and it went “CHIM – PAN – ZEE”! LOL

    These days of austerity and relative anxiety about taking on debt, many individuals balk up against the idea of utilizing a credit card in order to make purchase of merchandise or perhaps pay for a holiday, preferring, instead only to rely on the actual tried plus trusted procedure for making settlement – hard cash. However, if you possess cash on hand to make the purchase entirely, then, paradoxically, that is the best time to be able to use the credit cards for several factors.

Nevertheless, coming from everything that I have seen, I just wish when other remarks pack on that men and women stay on point and not embark on a soap box regarding some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this outstanding piece and while I do not concur with it in totality, I value your point of view.

    Dear Jane Goodall,
    I know you will probably never read this but i suppose there is a possibility you might so i will write anyway.
    I would just like you to know that you are absolutely amazing. I don’t believe you get all the respect you deserve. You are my hero and my idol. No one will ever compare to you. what you have done and what you continue to do just puts me in Awe. You are exactly right when you say Chimpanzees are amazing creatures. Chimps are my life they are everything to me. Ever since i was six Chimps have been my muse and you are one of the most important reasons for that. I don’t believe you have made such a big impact on anyone else. As soon as I heard about you and what you did I knew that, that was what I had to do as well. you have inspired me. I believe that Chimps are the reason that my heart is beating they are the creature that i was set to love study and respect. Chimps are the most amazing creatures in the worls with out them i feel like there is no reason to be alive. I try to raise awareness of what is happening to them, at my school and everyone tells me that no one cares and that no one will ever care. I tell them I care and I care a lot I will do what ever it takes to save the Chimps. I donate to your association every month. I donate all my allowence from that month to your association. Instead of getting clothes and other things for Christmas I tell my parents that I would prefer to give what they would have spent on me to helping save the chimps.

    I love you Jane Goodall with all my heart and more!!!
