Jane Goodall is an amazing woman. She has been working with primates for over 55 years and is considered the world's foremost expert on Chimpanzees.
Born in London UK, Goodall is a primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace. She founded the Jane Goodall Institute and the Roots and Shoots program. She has focused her efforts on conservation and animal welfare issues.
Working with animals can be tremendously rewarding. Though direct words are not possible, they often manage to say thank you.
Below is a video of a Chimpanzee "Wounda" being released back in to the wild. Goodall's team nursed back to health from near death.
