Jane Goodall, Geographer

Jane Goodall is known for her work with chimpanzees and for her work around the world encouraging young people to get involved in environmental protection, both locally and globally. Her Roots & Shoots organization provides a great opportunity for students to make a difference in the world, both locally and globally.

Because of this work, Dr. Goodall was the first person ever to receive the Atlas Award from the Association of American Geographers. Several members of the EarthView team were delighted to be in Washington DC for that presentation in April, 2010. We will never forget the chimpanzee greeting with which she opened her acceptance speech!
