Her other awards and international recognitions fill pages.

"Her scientific articles have appeared in many issues of National Geographic. She has written scores of papers for internationally known scientific journals.

"Dr. Goodall has expanded her global outreach with the founding of the Jane Goodall Institute based in Ridgefield, CT. She now teaches and encourages young people to appreciate the conversation of chimpanzees and all creatures great and small. She lectures, writes, teaches and continues her mission in many inventive ways, including the Chimpanzee Guardian Project."
