Jane Goodall will be in Burlington September 19th speaking at BPAC. Chimp is not expected to attend.

Acclaimed primatologist , environmentalist and United Nations Messenger of Peace,  Goodall will entertain with of stories from the field, her reflections on global conservation and hope for the future of the planet.

The VIP tickets include a cocktail reception and an opportunity to interact with Goodall personally.  This is a woman who took on the establishment and insisted that primates be protected and studied and did so at considerable personal risk.  While she is lauded and applauded today there was a time when the world didn’t have much time for Jane Goodall.

She is one of those people who lived her personal convictions and brought the world to a point where it saw the environment in a different light.  She made a difference.

During the Main Event Dr. Goodall will take questions from the audience.  She is both an amusing and at the same time a very forthright speaker; there is seldom any doubt as to what Jane Goodall thinks.
