“We are thrilled to be bringing such a visionary as Dr. Jane Goodall to the University of North Texas,” said Brittany Landau, coordinator of the series. “She is truly a pioneer in her research and we are excited to be welcoming a woman who embodies what it means to be green.”
Goodall has dedicated more than 50 years to showing others the need to protect chimpanzees from extinction and has redefined species conservation to include the needs of native people and the environment.
“The passion that she puts into her work is contagious,” Landau said. “We are looking forward to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members enjoying this memorable evening.”
