Gonzaga University Welcomes Dr. Jane Goodall April 9


On Tuesday, April 9, Dr. Jane Goodall, considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, will be coming to Gonzaga University as part of Gonzaga’s Presidential Speaker Series at 7 pm in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Goodall will describe the world of the Gombe chimpanzees, identify current threats facing the planet, and recognize successful community-centered conservation and development programs all over the world.
