Leakey Foundation

"The mission of the Leakey Foundation is to increase scientific knowledge and public understanding of human origins, evolution, behavior, and survival.

"Inspired by the interpretations of human evolution proposed by Dr. Louis Leakey, one of the past century's great anthropologists, several individuals founded the Leakey Foundation in 1968 to support his fieldwork and scientific priorities. Within its first decade of existence, the Leakey Foundation provided grants to many of the seminal studies that inform our understanding of human prehistory such as the field research and discoveries of Louis, Richard and Mary Leakey, Don Johanson, Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas."
