Jane Goodall is a famous scientist who studied the chimpanzees in Africa. She was born in London, England on April 3, 1934. Her father gave Jane a toy chimpanzee when she was one years old. She named it Jubilee and she still has Jubilee.
Once when Jane was a little girl she watched a chicken for five hours waiting for it to lay an egg. Her family called the police because they thought she was missing. Jane loved books about animals and Africa, especially the stories of Dr. Doolittle and Tarzan.
Jane moved to Africa when she was an adult. She studied the chimpanzees and she learned that chimpanzees use tools and eat meat. Jane Goodall got in trouble from other scientists because she named the chimps.
Jane Goodall is still alive. She travels and talks to people about saving the chimpanzees. She still visits her home in Africa.
