Where in the World is Dr. Jane?

Over the weekend, Jane and Simon Jackson, a member of the Jane Goodall Institute-Canada board and founder of The Spirit Bear Youth Coalition, were listed among the Top 100 Guardian Angels of the Planet by the French group Founding Congress for the World Green Games.  The Top 100 Guardian Angels of the Planet are recognized for empowering children to care for the environment.

International Travel: Jane in Italy

On June 2, 2013, Jane met with a choir of 800 children in Perugia, Italy, in the city’s Piazza IV Novembre. Throughout the school year, the children took part in Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots and studied Jane’s life and work.

International Travel: Jane in Nature

In May, Jane had the chance to see the bluebells in the Foret de Soignes in Brussels, Belgium. There for a “glorious” two days, she said that the area brought her back to her childhood in Bournemouth, England.

Happy Mother's Day

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we wanted to share two of our favorite archival photos of Dr. Jane with her mother, Vanne. Dr. Goodall always credits her “amazing mother” for her success. Growing up, her mother encouraged her by saying, “If you really want something, and if you work hard, take advantage of the opportunities, and never give up, you will somehow find a way.” To learn more about Dr. Jane’s early life and her inspiring mother, please visit http://www.janegoodall.org/janes-story.
