Jane Goodall

Jane keynotes Geneva Lecture Series

Jane was the keynote speaker of the fourth edition of the Geneva Lecture Series on 26 May at the Palais des Nations, and urged us all to recognize our obligation to future generations. "When I think about how we have harmed the planet since I was their age, I feel this desperation and shame," she said. "We have compromised their future. But it’s not true that there’s nothing that can be done about it”.

Her talk was titled "Nature's wake-up call: Why we must heed the warning."

A personal video message from Jane Goodall to our supporters

Jane visits Pierce Brosnan

While Jane was in California last week to accept the Minerva Award at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference, she took a few moments to catch up with an old friend. Pierce Brosnan, the actor and environmentalist who needs no introduction, has been Jane's friend and a JGI supporter for many years.

Jane Receives Minerva Award

On Tuesday, Jane took part in the one-of-a-kind California Women's Conference hosted by Maria Shriver. Over 25,000 women from around California - and the world - joined together for 2 days to celebrate and speak about the power of women to transform our world. From Madeleine Albright to Katie Couric to Sir Richard Branson, Jane joined an A-list line-up of conference speakers. Jane, along with 3 other pioneering women, was selected to receive the special Minerva Award this year.

Dr. Jane's Keynote at the AZA Convention

After Seattle, it was on to Portland, where Jane spoke at the  Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) conference. Jane spoke about the educational role of zoos and how Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, an international youth service program, is a natural fit for zoos interested in expanding their youth outreach.

Behind the Scenes at 'Good Morning America'

 While Jane was in New York City she had the opportunity to stop by the Good Morning America show to discuss her book, Hope for Animals and Their World. As you can imagine this meant a pretty early morning for Jane!  The show went on live around 8 a.m., and was broadcast to millions of homes around the country. Jane spoke about her hope for animals around the world, including China’s giant panda, which is featured in the book.
