At 23, Jane was sent out into the world of Chimpanzees to learn about their lives. She would learn tons from them as a silent observer. She took notes, studied their movements and actions from afar, and always respected their space and unity. Her eagerness to learn, her patience, and her general knowledge of animals cultivated a fire within her which burned bright. This fire was bright enough to catch the attention of Louis S. B. Leakey, an archaeologist and paleontologist in Africa who saw a lot of promise in Jane. Even though Jane did not have a degree, Louis offered her a position as an assistant. Jane set off on her first assignment on her own studying the wild chimpanzee. It was hard at first because they did not take kindly to humans; they were very shy at first. After a while, Jane began to study them from a distance and saw them utilize tools, actual handmade tools which were used to fish termites out of a nest for consumption. This discovery set Jane on her track to being one of the most known studiers and experts on chimpanzees in the world. Her discoveries helped her gain a good reference in Louis Leakey for a Doctorate degree. Jane’s adventure with the chimpanzees started in 1960.
