Own Mint Stamps Honoring Jane Goodall's
Pioneering Study of Chimpanzees
In 1960, Jane Goodall traveled to Tanzania's Gombe Stream National Park to study chimps. Unlike most researchers at the time, she didn't have collegiate training, and was able to study them in a different way. Instead of numbering the chimps, Goodall gave them names, which allowed her to form an emotional bond with them. Goodall became so close with the chimps that she became the only human ever accepted into chimpanzee society.
Other discoveries she made during this time included the presense of personalities, rational thought, and emotions. She also discovered that chimps could create basic tools and were, contrary to popular belief at the time, not vegetarians.
