Jane Goodall’s path may have been different had her father given her a teddy bear instead of a stuffed chimpanzee. Goodall still has that chimpanzee, named Jubilee. In 1957, she visited a friend’s farm in the Kenya highlands. She then called Louis Leakey, the Kenyan archaeologist and paleontologist. Her goal was to talk about animals. Her plans took a turn though, which changed her life.
