Most famously, Dr Jane Goodall is responsible for a sixty year continued study into the interactions of wild chimpanzees. Beginning the study in 1960, she took to the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania and observed the dynamics of primate families, making ground breaking discoveries surrounding their likeness to human abilities and requirement for similar bonds to be created. Founding the Jane Goodall Institute in 1977, the aim was for it to support her research and expand to protecting the species across the world. Stemming from her initial foundation, Dr Jane Goodall has since founded similar projects to help orphaned chimps, build sanctuaries and continue conservation.

Her earliest praise came in 1980 when she received an Order of the Golden Ark for major contributions to nature conservation. She has since gone on to receive over one hundred honours for her achievements including: Award for Human Excellence, Dame Commander of the British Empire and Rainforest Alliance Champion Award.
