PBS Special Features Pine Ridge and Exclusive Interview with Jane

Thursday, July 18, 2013 - 11:01am
For nearly a decade, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) has supported efforts to empower youth on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota through the Institute’s Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program. On the reservation, the Roots & Shoots members’ projects have ranged from planting community gardens to establishing farmers markets, initiating water conservation efforts, and so much more. 
 
This week, PBS will air a special episode of “Bridge the Gap TV” featuring a number of incredible youth initiatives taking place across the reservation. Given Jane’s longstanding support of Pine Ridge and its young people, Chris Bashinelli, “Bridge the Gap TV” executive producer, visited with Jane for an exclusive interview. During their conversation, they discussed how Roots & Shoots has brought hope to the reservation and empowered young people to become involved in improving their community for people, animals and the environment.
