Dame Jane Goodall, DBE, mit vollem Namen Valerie Jane Goodall , ist eine britische Verhaltensforscherin, die 1960 begann, das Verhalten von Schimpansen im Gombe-Stream-Nationalpark in Tansania zu untersuchen. Um für den Erhalt der Habitate der Primaten und damit für den Schutz ihrer Arten zu werben, gründete sie das Jane-Goodall-Institut, das Behandlung und Verständnis der Primaten durch öffentliche Bildung und rechtliche Vertretung zu verbessern sucht, die Zusammenarbeit mit lokalen Gemeinden stärken will und junge Leute für diese Aufgaben gewinnt und ausbildet.

Goodall ist neben Dian Fossey und Birutė Galdikas eine von drei Frauen, die auf Anregung des Paläontologen Louis Leakey Anfang der 1960er Jahre Langzeitstudien über Menschenaffen begannen. Leakey hoffte, von diesen Verhaltensbeobachtungen Rückschlüsse auf das Verhalten der Vormenschen ziehen zu können.

„I think if we study the primates, we notice that a lot of these things that we value in ourselves, such as human morality, have a connection with primate behavior.“

— Jane Goodall
Context: I think if we study the primates, we notice that a lot of these things that we value in ourselves, such as human morality, have a connection with primate behavior. This completely changes the perspective, if you start thinking that actually we tap into our biological resources to become moral beings. That gives a completely different view of ourselves than this nasty selfish-gene type view that has been promoted for the last 25 years. Frans de Waal, in a NOVA interview, "[http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/bonobo-all-us.html The Bonobo in All of Us" PBS (1 January 2007)]; quotes from this interview were for some time misplaced on this page, which probably generated similar misattributions elsewhere, and the misplacement was not discovered until after this quotation had been selected for Quote of the Day, as a quote of Goodall. Corrections were subsequently made here, during the day the quote was posted as QOTD.

„Researchers find it very necessary to keep blinkers on. They don't want to admit that the animals they are working with have feelings.“

— Jane Goodall
Context: Researchers find it very necessary to keep blinkers on. They don't want to admit that the animals they are working with have feelings. They don't want to admit that they might have minds and personalities because that would make it quite difficult for them to do what they do; so we find that within the lab communities there is a very strong resistance among the researchers to admitting that animals have minds, personalities and feelings.

„The least I can do is speak out for the hundreds of chimpanzees who, right now, sit hunched, miserable and without hope, staring out with dead eyes from their metal prisons. They cannot speak for themselves.“

— Jane Goodall
Reported in Janelle Rohr, Animal rights: opposing viewpoints (1989), p. 100; Jane Goodall and Jennifer Lindsey, Jane Goodall: 40 Years at Gombe (1999), p. 6. Occasionally misreported in truncated form, as "The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves", in, e.g., [http://xoearth.org/jane-goodall/ quote honored on XOEarth eco money]
