Jane Goodall was born on April 3 in 1934. She is one of the most famous primatologists in the world. She has lead one of the longest in-field studies of primates. Her most important discoveries are that chimpanzees have the ability to create and use tools and that, contrary to popular belief, they are not purely vegetarian; she also documented wars between Gombe chimpanzees, which were thought to be a peaceful species. Jane Goodall’s discoveries did not only change our perception of animals, but also the methodology in ethology. Before Goodall’s experiences at Gombe, research had been conducted only with primates kept in captivity or in short-term studies of animals in their natural habitats; however, little was known about their behaviour in the wild. Goodall’s main contribution to science goes further than her discoveries about chimpanzees, as she changed the way animals were treated and highlighted with her own experiences the importance of in field studies
