Dr. Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a UN Messenger of Peace, will speak at the University of Montana on Sunday, June 26. Her talk, “Hope Through Action,” is part of UM’s President’s Lecture Series and co-sponsored by UM’s Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center and the International Wildlife Film Festival.
The lecture, which is free and open to the community, will take place at 6 p.m. on the Oval and virtually for those who can’t attend in person.
Goodall’s scientific legacy stretches back more than 60 years to her groundbreaking research of the then little-known wild chimpanzees living in Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. Her revelatory observation that chimpanzees make and use tools rocked the scientific landscape, forever redefining our understanding of the relationship between humans and other animals.
More information about the event, including how to livestream the lecture, will be available on the President’s Lecture Series webpage.
The University will provide 500 chairs for the event that will be placed underneath a large, shaded tent on a first-come, first-served basis. If attendees want to spread out across the Oval or arrive to the lecture late, event organizers encourage them to bring their own chairs.
