World-renowned scientist speaks at the Cintas Center | October 8, 2002
Jane Goodall, one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century, is speaking tonight, Oct. 9, at the Cintas Center at 7:30 p.m. Goodall's presentation, which benefits the Cincinnati Museum Center and the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, focuses on her work with chimpanzees in the Gombe National Forest in Tanzania.
Goodall is one of the world's best-known wildlife researchers. When she arrived in Kenya in 1957, chimpanzee life was a mystery. She revolutionized primate research when she chose to share a forest home with these animals. Eventually, she changed the way the world sees and studies chimps and their habitats.
Goodalls visit to Cincinnati is part of a new exhibit and Omnimax film, "Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees," which opens Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
Tickets for Goodall's presentation range from $5-$40. Seating is limited. Tickets are on sale at the Cintas Center ticket office at 513 745-3411 or through Ticketmaster at 513 562-4949. For more information on the exhibit and film at the museum center, call 513 287-7000.
