Dr Jane Goodall, a British ethologist and anthropologist who specialises in the protection of biodiversity, has been unveiled at Grévin Museum.
She is another important figure in the history of science, joining those who have shaped the world today.
The leading international figure in environmental protection!
Dr Jane Goodall has been fascinated by animals since she was a young girl, and at the age of 23, she dived into the world of science, making numerous discoveries concerning the environment. She has been awarded many titles throughout her exemplary and extraordinary career:
🌱 In 1977 she established the "Jane Goodall Institute” to support biodiversity
🕊️ She was named a "United Nations Messenger of Peace"
🐒 She was the 1st scientist to have observed that chimpanzees have personalities and express their emotions
🎖️ She was awarded UNESCO's 60th anniversary gold medal
🤝 She was awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elisabeth II
To celebrate this inauguration, part of the profits from December’s ticket sales will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute.
It took six months to create Jane Goodall's waxwork. Her character is dressed as an explorer, to be as close to reality as possible. Her waxwork will not be alone, as she will be accompanied by a baby chimpanzee perched in a tree. A jungle-themed alcove has been designed in the magnificent Hall of Columns, to welcome them alongside the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio, Charlie Chaplin and Celine Dion.
