Look into the life of Jane:

She pursued her passion of working with animals

When she grew up, Jane was told about a group of chimpanzees living on the shores of a lake in Tanzania. Nobody had ever studied chimps in the wild up close before. She would have to take notes and spend hours in the rain forest where the chimps lived, watching their behavior. Jane was excited to see how they lived, played, ate, and made friends.

Jane loved animals from an early age

Jane was born with a love of nature, especially animals. When she was just one and a half, Jane took a handful of earthworms to bed with her. As soon as Jane’s mom explained that worms need soil to live, Jane ran outside and returned the worms to their garden. Jane’s dad also saw her love of animals. He bought her a stuffed chimpanzee named Jubilee. Jane loved Jubilee and took him nearly everywhere she went.

She’s making the world a better place for chimps and all living things

The world is more aware of how similar humans and chimps are. Jane’s discoveries led to people protecting these animals. At age 85, Jane still travels to share their story and raise money to protect them and other endangered animals.

Jane helped save the chimps

Loggers were destroying the chimps’ habitat. She knew she had to protect them. The best way to help was to keep researching and reporting on the chimps so more people around the world would care about saving their habitats. She also worked on behalf of the chimps by speaking and marching in order to get the government to protect them.
