Jane Goodall: from scientist to activist – Speaks tonight (4/28) at MSU
When Jane Goodall attended a scientific conference in 1986, she arrived a scientist and left an activist.
Goodall will deliver the MSU Friends of the Stegner Lecture, "Reason for Hope" 6 p.m. Monday at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. At the conference, the famed primatologist was “truly shocked” to learn of the deteriorating habitat of chimpanzees in Africa. The chimp population on that continent had dropped to one-quarter of what it had been in 1960, when she began to study the animals.

Jane Goodall lectures about hope for the planet Monday at MSU
Dr. Jane Goodall will deliver the 2008 Wallace Stegner Lecture at MSU at 6 p.m. Monday, April 28, at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse at Montana State University. There is no admission fee for the lecture, but seating is limited.
Bozeman and Tanzania, where Dr. Jane Goodall initiated the work with chimpanzees that launched her into international renown, are a world apart but share at least one thing, Goodall said Sunday in Bozeman.
"(Gombe) is similar to Bozeman in that there has been rapid population growth, but the land there can’t support it," Goodall said.
Goodall, world-renowned primatologist, environmentalist and humanitarian, is in Bozeman to deliver a "Reason for Hope" at 6 p.m. Monday, April 28, at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse at Montana State University.
