Jane Goodall is an exceptional woman. At 80 years of age, she spends 300 of 365 days a year travelling the world and continuing the conservation work that she is so highly regarded for. Of those 300 days that Jane spends travelling, it is incredible to think that you could spend one of these days with her at Australia Zoo.
Bindi and Terri Irwin will join Jane in celebrating her 80th birthday in an Australia Zoo event which focuses on the experiences of three influential conservationists. Hosted by Ray Martin in one of three exclusive Australian appearances, Jane will talk about her incredible life which has inspired future generations to share in her passion.
Her perpetual quest to learn more about chimpanzees by living with them in Tanzania taught us what we know about them today. By proving that chimpanzees can make tools, are not vegetarians, and have emotions and personalities – Jane was given the opportunity to study her Ph.D in animal behaviour at Cambridge University. She now holds a number of qualifications, but it is her incredible experiences that she holds most dear.
On Sunday June 8, guests can be entertained with Jane Goodall’s amazing life stories in the Australia Zoo Crocoseum. Attendees can listen to first-hand accounts from the woman that has shown us how intelligent and important chimpanzees are in what will truly be a once in a lifetime event. Jane consistently encourages people to recognise their responsibility and power to make social change, and the Irwin family are a testament to this.
Bindi and Terri Irwin are delighted to host Jane Goodall at Australia Zoo in one of three appearances on her Australian tour, in which she will also visit Sydney and Melbourne. Originally scheduled to visit Perth – Jane instead chose to come to the Sunshine Coast after recognising the Irwin family’s shared passion for wildlife.
