The Sacramento Zoo would like to wish Dr. Jane Goodall a very happy 80th Birthday!
World-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, is legendary for her work with chimpanzees. She is also the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, a global nonprofit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things. A branch of the Jane Goodall Institute is the Roots & Shoots Program, in which the Sacramento Zoo participates. Roots & Shoots, is a global humanitarian and environmental youth program.
Jane Goodall visited the Sacramento Zoo in 1987, 2003 and 2009. Her research continues to play a role in how zoos, including the Sacramento Zoo, have come to understand and interact with primates.
