Famed Ethologist and Conservation Icon Dr. Jane Goodall to Speak at the University of Montana – 6/26 at 6PM

June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a UN Messenger of Peace, will speak at the University of Montana on Sunday, June 26.

Goodall’s talk, “Hope Through Action,” is part of UM’s President’s Lecture Series and co-sponsored by UM’s Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center and the International Wildlife Film Festival. The lecture, which is free and open to the community, will take place at 6 p.m. on the Oval and virtually for those who can’t attend in person.

Goodall’s scientific legacy stretches back more than 60 years to her groundbreaking research of the then little-known wild chimpanzees living in Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. With mentorship from paleoanthropologist Dr. Louis Leakey, Goodall’s research transformed the study of wildlife. Her revelatory observation that chimpanzees make and use tools rocked the scientific landscape, forever redefining our understanding of the relationship between humans and other animals.
