While Jane was stuck in Washington, DC during the epic snow storm last week, she recorded a video message about what she's been up to recently. Take a look at Jane's video update from the road. Although many of Jane's appointments were unfortunately cancelled, she still was able to pay a visit to National Public Radio's Science Friday program. You can hear the interview here in case you missed it!
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."

The Jane Goodall Institute is a global organization, with operations in more than 20 countries worldwide. At the end of November, Jane traveled to Belgium to join the leaders of international JGIs to discuss priorities for the year ahead.
