DR JANE GOODALL, DBE, FOUNDER - THE JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE AND UN MESSENGER OF PEACE
Dr Goodall greets just about every audience in "chimpanzee" for a reason.
She perhaps more than anyone on Earth is in a position to act as ambassador from one species to another.
As a 26-year-old in 1960, she had travelled from England to Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. But with her rare degree of patience, and fortified by characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures. She managed to open a window onto their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated and remains so to this day.
Today Dr Goodall's work revolves around mobilsing action on behalf of chimpanzees, who are endangered, and all wildlife species.
I just returned home from my trip to Peru. Luis Silvera, along with Wilbert and our driver Nestor, were our guides and I wanted to take a moment to extend our compliments to A&K for an amazing experience. The trip surpassed all of our expectations! Mark and I both agreed that it was one of the best trips we've ever taken.
