Renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall will be speaking at the University of Arkansas on Friday, October 5th. She will be giving a lecture entitled “Making a Difference: An Evening with Jane Goodall.”
Goodall is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a United Nations Messenger of Peace who became well known in the 1960’s for her work studying wild chimpanzees on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika at the Gombe Stream Reserve. Her book, The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior is considered the seminal work on the subject of chimpanzee behavior.
This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the foremost primatologists in the world speak. The lecture will be held inside Barnhill Arena and is part of the University of Arkansas’ 10th birthday celebration for the school’s Honors College.
The event is free and open to the public. If you have the opportunity to go and hear Dr. Goodall speak I highly recommend that you do so.
