Caption: Jane Goodall (born 1934), British primatologist. Goodall is best known for studying the social and family lives of wild chimpanzees living in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania, where she has worked for 45 years. One of her major discoveries in primatology was in 1960, when she observed chimps making tools. It was believed that only humans could adapt objects to create tools, separating them from other animals (which used only unaltered objects to assist them). Goodall's discovery prompted scientists to redefine the human in relation animals. She founded the Jane Goodall Institute in 1977, which raises global awareness of primate behaviour and habitats, and how these are affected by human behaviour such as poaching. Photographed in May 2006.
