They had been made homeless by the war.

Not only does meat eating destroy animals but, she explains, it means clearing forests to feed the animals which increases the amount of desert space.Goodall thinks that people are moving in a good direction toward increased caring for other people and for animals.

One of Goodall's favorites was a dog named Rusty.

The sisters were taught prayers at home and could go to the Christian church when they chose to go.

In addition she realized the great Power that inspired her.

patting each other on the back, holding hands and even holding grudges if they were offended.There were difficulties to overcome but Goodall was committed to her work.

Again, a dream come true for her.

She obtained a PhD in ethnology from Cambridge in 1965 at Leaky's urging and would later teach at Stanford University.Goodall and her sister have a neurological condition known as prosopagnosia which is a memory impairment for face and patterns.

Her family instilled values such as courage, honesty, compassion and a tolerance for other people.

He was the only white elected to Parliament in black Africa.

Her family, not having money for a higher education, and her skills at aforeign language poor, which meant not getting a scholarship, she was desperate as how shewould get to Africa. On the advice of her mother that she become a secretary because,"...secretaries can work anywhere," Ms. Goodall set off for London at the age of19 to learn secretarial skills. There, she spent most of her free time exploring artgalleries, especially the Tate, and the Natural History Museum; she took full advantage ofthe city's cultural atmosphere. But it was not until she received a letter from an oldschool friend inviting her to visit the family farm in Africa that her life truly changed.

In 1979, he died of cancer after enduring much suffering and pain.

As Ms. Goodall became more familiar with the chimps she started giving themnames; an unforgivable scientific practice at that time, as "animals" weresupposed to be "numbers." This is done to keep a detached view of the subjectand not skewer observations. But, not only did she give them names, but she saw in themvivid personalities and human-like emotions -- an even greater sin. This all came aboutbecause Ms. Goodall was not schooled in the educational science factories we calluniversities; her religious and moral upbringing lead to compassionate observations andsaw the chimps as kindred spirits; she merely recorded what she saw and believed deeply inher observations as the truth. Science and all of humanity are better off today because ofher "unscientific" observations. As Ms. Goodall observed and confirmed otherprimatologists observations, the chimps have behaviors similar to all the human cultureson the planet. Chimpanazees have been seen kissing, embracing, holding hands, patting eachother on the back, swaggering, tickling, kicking, and fighting. But her greatestobservation came one day when she saw David Graybread using a tool to extract termitesfrom the soil. But of course, no one believed her until a National Geographic photographercaptured the chimpanzees of Gombe using the tools she described.

There were also two aunts Olwen and Audrey Gwyneth who resided with the Goodalls.

He would also use leaves to get rainwater.

I think that I may know the reason for Wilson's reluctance. Every scientist wants credit for his or her own theory formation or discovery, and thisesteemed scientist is no different. But one of the tests of a great scientist is thehumility in which he or she presents themselves to the world. So, as far as Iam concerned, Mr. Wilson, I praise you for your insight, wisdom, and courage. And, at least at this web site, you are the father of evolutionary psychology.

He gave Jane a gift when she was about one year old that she still treasures today.

She cannot recognize people's faces.

That dream did eventually come true for her.Even in their quiet little town, Jane and her family could see the planes and hear the bombs of the war and watch American tanks on the road near their home.

It is a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee after a chimp that was famous at the London Zoo at that time.

Grub spent his early childhood on the Serengeti.

Saving up for two years by scrimping every penny, Ms. Goodall set off for theAfrican continent at the age of 23. By a set of unique circumstances, Ms. Goodall wasintroduced to Richard Leaky who was so impressed by her knowledge of primates and naturalhistory that Leakey offered her a job as his personal secretary on the spot. One suspectsthat Leaky had a larger plan behind hiring Goodall because Leaky believed that femaleswere more patient and deliberate in their scientific observations. The reason I say thathe may have a had a master plan is that Jane Goodall was just one of a triad of femaleobservers organized and financed by Leaky. (Diane Fossey was sent to Rwanda to studygorilla, Birute Galdikas was sent to Indonesia to observe orangutans, and Goodall to GombeNational Park to observe chimpanzees -- they were called the "Leaky Girls.")Within two years, Leaky sent his protégé into the jungle to study the chimpanzees.
