An updated, photo-filled account of a half century working with chimpanzees in East Africa by the renowned primatologist.

In honor of the field site’s fiftieth anniversary, Jane Goodall: 50 Years at Gombe is a compelling pictorial tribute to Dr. Goodall’s life, her studies of chimpanzee behavior, and her unflagging efforts to motivate people to make this world a better place. With new pho­tographs and updated text throughout, this revised edition retraces five decades of compassion and discovery.

Though the book covers a half century, the accomplishments of the past ten years alone have given the Jane Goodall Institute a great deal to celebrate. Recounted are endeavors at the Gombe field site including landmark research related to AIDS progression; establishing programs to improve sanitation, health care, and education in neighboring Tanzanian communities; and partnering with local people to pursue reforestation initiatives.
