The Global Forest Watch (GFW) platform presents a unique opportunity to strengthen the work of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) in protecting chimpanzees and their habitats in Africa. In this blog I would like to share how JGI and partners are building capacity to eventually use Global Forest Watch in combination with mobile technologies to improve forest monitoring in Uganda.
The Budongo and Bugoma Forest Reserves in western Uganda are home to an estimated 1,157 chimpanzees.
I am very proud to serve as a Disneynature Ambassador and to join Disney in speaking up about the importance of protected areas like America’s national parks to preserving the habitats and natural resources all of us need to thrive.
I joined the Disneynature team while they were filming the movie Bears, I witnessed first-hand the beauty of America’s national parks.
