A life in the wild!
Jane Goodall, born in London, England, always loved animals and wanted to study them in their natural habitats. So at age twenty-six, off she went to Africa! Goodall's up-close observations of chimpanzees changed what we know about them and paved the way for many female scientists who came after her. Goodall also devoted her life to conservation, urging people to protect our fragile planet and the other species that call it home. Now her story comes to life in this biography from the Who Was..? biography series with black-and-white illustrations throughout.
