We have lost a tremendous spirit: My mentor, Robert Hinde. During my time at Cambridge obtaining a degree in ethology studying Gombe's wonderful chimps, he was a perfect supervisor. Without him, I would not be the scientist I am. Most importantly, he taught me to think critically while allowing me to explore the very nature of chimpanzees - with his guidance I was able to move the field to...

I have spent my life focusing on ways to best build harmonious relationships between people, animals and the environment. What will you do in 2017 and in the future to protect our world and better these relationships?

We celebrate two very different, but equally unique and unforgettable women this week - Betty White and Dian Fossey.

Betty has impacted our culture in so many ways with her smile, humor and integrity. Dian, one of my fellow "Trimates," led the way for gorilla research and has a legacy of conservation rare and essential. To both, I want to wish a very Happy Birthday.

I have always loved animals, but when I saw how human ways of life were destroying the forests and harming wildlife - especially chimpanzees - I knew I had to do something more than to just study them in the wild. If did nothing, they would all be lost. We must each do something.

We must evaluate our relationships to all living things and what we choose to do to make a difference each day to...

Have you ever heard of a bird called a rhea? It is an amazing flightless bird in the ratite family, related to ostriches, emus, and kiwis. I was able to do a bit of writing on a particularly interesting and unique rhea named Amica, in collaboration with Meadow and Washo Shadowhawk, the adoptive family of this strange and beautiful creature in their book "Amica's World."

Washo is himself a...

So happy to share my story and the work of the Jane Goodall Institute with CNN on #InsideAfrica.

There's so much work left to do - from primate research in my beloved Gombe, to inspiring young people to take action in nearly 100 countries - we must keep going.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a man driven by hope, unrelenting in his vision, and wise in his work for peace and an end to racism and discrimination. It took just this one man (along with many other activists supporting him) to inspire thousands. It took those thousands, and then millions, to further his dream.

The most important question is: Where will we take his dream next, and what will...

Dr. Jane Goodall and the Jane Goodall Institute are calling on all of you to take action around recycling mobile phones (and other used electronics). Many of the metals and minerals used in these technologies are extracted from threatened chimpanzee habitats across the Congo Basin. Control over these resources has also fueled conflict — conflict that has resulted in the deaths of more than...

25 years ago, a group of Tanzanian students wanted to do something to change the world. Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Program was born. Now in nearly 100 countries, this is one of my greatest wishes for the future: young people who feel empowered to help where they can, when they can, making a difference, everyday.
