A Closer Look at Becoming Jane: Her Scientific Legacy
Join the next conversation live and in-person on March 25
In conjunction with the special exhibition Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Jane Goodall, NHM is hosting two after-hours programs delving deeper into her ground-breaking research and inspirational life.
The first event took place on February 18th to a sold-out audience. You can check out the conversation featuring USC Professor of Biological Sciences and Anthropology Dr. Craig Stanford and Candace Sclimenti, Curator of Mammals at the L.A. Zoo in a discussion moderated by the one and only Patt Morrison for a deep dive into the impact Dr. Goodall continues to have on the science of primatology.
Panelists recounted how Dr. Goodall's scientific insights changed the way the world saw chimpanzees. Far from peaceful primates, Dr. Goodall uncovered how much chimpanzees are just like us: complicated, emotional animals capable of violence and great compassion. Explore the impacts of her remarkable research, the inspirational effect she's had on individuals, how to say "ciao" in chimpanzee and so much more.
Guests got a behind-the-scenes look at specimens from NHM’s Mammalogy Collection from Museum curators and collections managers.
Moderated by Patt Morrison, experts in the field of primatology discussed the scientific legacy of Dr. Goodall and took questions from the audience.
Attendees took an after-hours trip through the life and accomplishments of Dr. Goodall in the Becoming Jane exhibit.
