Bill Wallauer is a world renowned videographer who has spent more than 15 years in the wild documenting wild chimpanzees in Tanzania - where he spent more time in the wild with chimps than humans. He has lent his talents as a videographer and consultant to more than 30 productions for Animal Planet, Discovery's Planet Earth, Disney Nature and others.
Bill became part of the Jane Goodall Institute's team to help document chimpanzees in the wild, where he has recorded their daily behavior and also captured a live chimp birth on tape.
He will be online Tuesday, March 8, at noon ET, to chat about his time in the wild, working for the institute and his experiences with chimpanzees.

Angelina Jolie comments on Jane Goodall's new feature film, Jane's Journey, which premiered in Berlin this week.
Scorecard: 9 (out of 10). German filmmaker Lorenz Knauer has crafted a comprehensive biography of someone who is the personification of commitment. In addition to archival footage of Dr. Goodall at work throughout the years, Knauer's artful camera follows her around the world as she inspires young and old with her talks and admonitions. “We must learn to live in peace and harmony, not only with each other, but with the natural world,” she states in the film. Along the way we encounter her allies in her missions, including Pierce Brosnan, Angelina Jolie and Kofi Annan.
“We all have to get involved,” Dr. Goodall says. “We all have to make decisions in our daily lives to make a difference.” Seeing this film will move you and stir you to action.
