Still alive is Jane Goodall. She was born there on April 3, 1934. From a young age, she was interested in how animals act.
Goodall jumped at the chance to go to Kenya and study animals in their natural environment. Soon after, an anthropologist named Louis Leakey hired her as his secretary. Leakey thought that Goodall had the right personality to live alone in the wild for a long time to study how chimps interact with each other and their families. Over time, she became the most knowledgeable person in the world about chimpanzees. She works on issues of animal welfare and conservation now, and she also started the Jane Goodall Institute.
