The exhibition will launch on Nov. 7 and run until April 17, 2022.

Goodall, the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, founded the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace and has created an indelible legacy in the fields of science and conservation.

“We are honored to present this marvelous exhibition and share Jane Goodall’s journey with audiences from all over the world,” said Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga, President and Director of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County. “As we emerge from the past year and continue on a path towards healing, Dr. Goodall’s life and work provide an unparalleled example of how curiosity can lead to environmental stewardship with tremendous impact.”

She traveled to what is now Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park and immersed herself by observing chimpanzees in their natural habitat.

  • A call to action to visitors from Goodall to join her, the Jane Goodall Institute and National Geographic, in an effort to ensure a more sustainable future for us all; and
