Jane Goodall 1934- PRIMATOLOGIST AND CONSERVATIONIST Fifty years ago she began studying chimpanzee families at the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania — and in the process taught us much about our own. Roots & Shoots, her environmental organization for kids, has tens of thousands of participants — a new generation ready to protect wild things and their habitats.
