Now, her conservation efforts have been captured in three new images, a self-portrait and two others that showcase the remarkable lives of the animals she’s dedicated her life to saving.

Made by fastening a camera to a tree branch, Goodall’s self-portrait catches a quiet moment with the primatologist looking across the valley at Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania.

“It was taken in, I think, 1962. I was on my own, very high up in the hills and I thought what a great photo this would make,” she told Vital Impacts, a women-led nonprofit that provides financial assistance to community-oriented organizations dedicated to protecting the environment.

“I had to find a place where there was a tree that was just right for balancing the camera. I had to set up the tripod and fiddle about until I had the tripod and the imagined image of me framed just right. That was in the days before digital so I had to wait a long time before I got the results back from National Geographic. I was pretty proud of myself. I love that picture.”

A signed print of the image is available as part of Vital Impacts’ limited-time sale which features work from 100 environmentalists and photographers. Paul Nicklen, James Balog, Cristina Mittermeier,  Nick Brandt, Chris Burkard, Jimmy Chin, Tamara Dean, David Doubilet, Beverly Joubert, Keith Ladzinski, Jim Naughten, Maggie Steber, Joel Sartore, Tim Flach, Carol Guzy, Matthieu Paley, Xavi Bou, Beth Moon, Ami Vitale, Stephen Wilkes, and Reuben Wu are among the artists featured.
