Jane's second stop in her Spring 2010 USA lecture tour was Washington, DC, where she received the Atlas Award from the Association of American Geographers (AAG). Jane was the first recipient of the award, which is "designed to recognize and celebrate outstanding accomplishments that advance world understanding in exceptional ways." On April 16 at the Marriot Wardman Hotel in downtown Washington, Jane gave the keynote address to nearly 3,000 geographers and other guests.

Jane's USA Lecture Tour Begins: Buffalo

Jane's Spring 2010 USA lecture tour kicked off at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York on April 14. Passing by Niagra Falls, Jane drove from Toronto, where she had previous speaking engagements, for a very special lecture -- the first in the United States to mark Gombe 50, a global celebration of Jane's pioneering chimpanzee research and inspiring vision for our future. The lecture was titled Gombe and Beyond: The Next Fifty Years.

You can hear the interview here in case you missed it!

Happy Valentine's Day from Dr. Jane

The Story of Mr. H - Jane's Traveling Companion

If you have ever met Jane in person you know that she is never without Mr. H, a unique toy monkey with a special story. Here in Jane's own words is the story of her traveling companion:

Film Shoot in Munich

One of Jane's passions is living a vegetarian lifestyle. Being vegetarian is healthier not only for the consumer but also the environment.

Dr. Jane and the Necklace

As Jane travels the world - and airport after airport - she meets many people along the way. Often the interaction starts when someone whispers "is that really Jane Goodall?" and Jane responds with a cheerful "Hello! How are you?"

A Special Drawing for Jane

Jane received a very special picture from a member of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program recently.  

The young artist, Isabella from Florida, had this to say about her drawing:

A Visit to the Jane Goodall Research Center

This past October, as part of Jane's autumn 2009 United States lecture tour, she visited the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and the Jane Goodall Research Center on campus.

The Jane Photo of the Week

With Jane on a perpetual world speaking tour and traveling to every corner of the globe, you can imagine what  a variety of "Jane in action" shots we have ! To showcase some appealing images, every week we will be featuring one special photo of Jane. The new feature will be called "The Jane Photo of the Week."

Too "Chimpanzee-Specific"?

Jane's message really travels. In the Jane Goodall Institute offices we receive emails from people around the world who are inspired by Jane's work. A few months ago, we received an original cartoon by an artist in India named Harsha Nagaraju. Harsha, a Jane fan, was motivated to draw the cartoon after seeing several TV shows about Jane. He wanted to point out that Jane's research is about chimpanzees, while having a little fun too!
