It’s our favorite day of the week because it’s....#fanartfriday ! This piece comes from @elizareisfeldart , capturing the symbiotic and compassionate relationship Jane shared with the wild chimps of Gombe as immersed in their community as an observer and scientist, and as someone who saw them as complex and deserving of respect. Did you know Jane’s early studies of chimps, which included discoveries like chimps make and use tools, are omnivores, show altruism and have individual personalities, continues to this day through JGI and Gombe Stream Research Center? It’s the longest running wild mammal study in the world and we’re learning new things everyday! The applications are enormous ranging from learning more about early human ancestors and our own behavior, to human health, as well as chimp and great ape conservation work.

Dr. Goodall realized that working in collaboration with local communities, especially by empowering women & girls, is key to successful conservation & it has infused the work of JGI from the beginning.

"Everybody laughed at me and told me I was just a girl. Except my mother. She said that if I really wanted something, I had to work hard, take advantage of opportunities and never give up. I never forgot her advice." - Dr. Jane Goodall
