Interview Opportunity: Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, world renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace

MONTREAL, Sept. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - On October 6, 2016, Dr. Jane Goodall will be delivering the keynote speech at the 2016 International Conference on Sustainable Veterinary Practice in Montreal at Bonsecours Market Ballroom.

At age 26, Jane Goodall arrived in Tanzania armed with little more than notepad, a pair of binoculars and a dream to observe African wildlife. She observed chimpanzees expressing a range of emotions, developing close family bonds and forming social groups. In her address, Dr. Goodall will delve into her observations that changed our understanding of animal behaviour, inspiring more than 50 years of research that resulted in a re-consideration of what it means to be human. 

From personal stories of her love for animals to accounts of scientific breakthroughs, Dr. Goodall inspires audiences of all ages with a message of hope—that within each of us is the potential to make a positive difference for all living things so that we may live in harmony with nature.

INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY: Dr. Goodall has limited availability on October 5, 2016 in the evening to speak with media.


Wednesday, October 5, 2016.
