Where is Dr Jane

Being recognised at the Animal Hero Awards

TheAnimal Hero Awards 2018 was an awards evening like no other! Attended by some of the biggest names in showbiz and animal conservation, many of them brought their pet as their plus one!

Hosted by the engaging and enigmatic Amanda Holden, the event was full of excitement, celebration and inspiration.

The evening honours the achievements of the four-legged and furry as well as inspirational people who have gone above and beyond personal action on behalf of animal welfare.

So many worthy winners in one room made for an exceptionally special night. Dr Jane moved the audience to tears when she accepted the Lifetime Achievement award presented by Born Free’s Virginia McKenna. Her research into wild chimpanzees at Gombe, Western Tanzania, changed the way we think about animals forever.

She said: “I wanted to go to Africa. The Second World War was raging. People said I couldn’t do it, but my mother told me to take every opportunity I could get and to never give up on my dreams.”

And so she did, and has not stopped for over 55 years.


Thank you Daily Mirror, RSPCA and Webbox for organising and sponsoring the night!
