July 12, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- When Jane Goodall lectures on campus later this year, don't be surprised if she starts to pant, hoot and scream like a chimpanzee.

That's how she engages her audiences.

An acclaimed scientist and conservationist known as the world's foremost authority on chimpanzees, Goodall will lecture regarding her research efforts and outreach programs at 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at the University of Kentucky Singletary Center for the Arts.

The event is sponsored by the UK Tracy Farmer Center for the Environment.

Goodall has closely observed chimpanzee behavior for the past quarter century in the jungles of the Gombe Game Reserve in Africa, living in their environment and gaining their confidence. Her research and writing are considered to have made revolutionary inroads into scientific thinking regarding the evolutions of humans.

Goodall has expanded her global outreach with the founding of the Jane Goodall Institute based in Silver Spring, Md.
