The similarities between animals and humans might seem obvious to us now (see: any major political race or the state of reality TV), but this was not always the case. Dr Jane Goodall uncovered the complexity of social and familial life within groups of wild chimpanzees, highlighting the connection between humans and our closest living relatives. Through her groundbreaking work in Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park, Dr Goodall redefined how scientists interact with the wild, contributing to one of the greatest studies of primates the world has ever seen. She has lamented that Tarzan married the wrong Jane...and we agree.
With the 60th anniversary of her arrival in Gombe approaching in 2020, Dr Goodall once again joins Think Inc. to celebrate her work and reflect on how the study that she began years ago endures today. This event will consist of a 40-minute lecture by Dr Jane Goodall, followed by a 40-minute conversation between Dr Jane Goodall and the event host. Think Inc. & the Jane Goodall Institute Australia are honoured to present Jane Goodall: Rewind the Future, the 2019 Australian Tour.
