JGI Chimpanzee Blog

Baraka has been working at the Gombe Stream Research Center as a Research Assistant for 15 years. On an average day he collects data on chimpanzees in the field, painstakingly recording every action of each chimpanzee he has been tasked with observing. This B-record data may be used in future studies, books, and/or films aimed at teaching us more about chimpanzees and their social structure.

 

Where in the World is Dr. Jane?

Starting today, in honor of Earth Day, Google.org is matching all donations through April 30, up to $20,000. Dr. Jane took the Google Doodle Earth Day quiz and found out that her animal is the Whooping Crane! Like the Whooping Crane, chimpanzees, the species Dr. Goodall has studied for more than five decades, are also endangered.

Roots & Shoots Blog

This spring, JGI successfully completed its first crowdfunding campaign for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots in Tanzania, raising over $16,000 via Pozible. The project aims to engage students from Sokoine Primary School in a study of local plants found in a nearby forest reserve. 
 
Having protected the forest reserve for a number of years now, the students are eager to spread information about the medicinal benefit of plants found in the forest.
