Background On Dr. Goodall's Discoveries About Chimpanzees
Throughout her career, Dr. Jane Goodall has made many important discoveries regarding the lifestyle of chimpanzees. These discoveries changed the way many primatologists conducted their studies. While many scientists were studying animals with binoculars from twenty feet away, Jane was studying the chimpanzees barefoot and within physical touching range, which is a main factor as to why she was so successful in her studies. Without Goodall's work, many important conclusions regarding chimpanzees would have never been made.
