Dr. Jane Goodall, renowned ethologist and conservationist, will speak at the University of Michigan-Flint Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Forum Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Goodall is considered the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees and has studied the social and family interactions of these animals for more than 55 years. She will draw from that groundbreaking work to discuss how we all can take action to conserve and protect all living things, including the planet that we share.
