COLUMBIA — Renowned primatologist Jane Goodall will be far from the forests of Tanzania on Sept. 17 when she brings her knowledge of chimpanzees to Mizzou Arena.
Tickets are now on sale for $10 to the public and can be purchased at the MSA/GPC Box Office or at Ticketmaster.com. Although tickets are free with a student ID, students cannot buy them online for free due to services charge.
Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, is best known for her landmark study of chimpanzees in Tanzania. In addition to her research, she was appointed as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and she was named a Dame of the British Empire for her efforts.
She will speak about her work, the threats facing chimpanzees, other environmental crises and how people can help.
Goodall is one of the speakers presented by Delta Gamma Lectureship in Values and Ethics, whose goal is "to educate students... about the value and importance of ethical conduct and personal and professional excellence through leadership and community involvement," according to the organization's website.
Her lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 17 at Mizzou Arena.
Supervising editor is Samuel Hardiman.
