Last week, Jane Goodall spoke at Pima Community College Northwest Campus to give a speech entitled, "Gombe and Beyond: The Next 50 years."

Fifty years ago, Goodall first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in what is now Tanzania's Gombe National Park. She pioneered chimpanzee behavioral research that has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.

Today, Goodall is a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and a UN Messenger of Peace.

In her lecture, Goodall reflected—both personally and professionally—on the meaning of the past five decades, the changes the world has seen since 1960, and the impact these changes have had on people, animals and the environment.

In addition, she discussed the role people must all play over the next 50 years to ensure a better future for generations to come.
