Once again gracing our shores is the iconic, inspirational and inimitable Dr Jane Goodall for her Australian tour, Rewind the Future, in May 2019.
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.
Dr Goodall’s quest for animal welfare and conservation is as relevant now as it ever has been. With the shifts in our global climate displacing not only chimpanzees but thousands of other species (including humans), her message of compassion and environmental responsibility is incredibly pertinent for 2019 and beyond.
