For Immediate Release: BRINGCOM PARTNERS WITH THE JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE TO IMPROVE CONNECTIVITY FOR FLAGSHIP SITES
WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 22, 2015) – Fifty-five years ago, when Jane Goodall arrived on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, her communications technology was limited to some notebooks and a supply of pens and pencils. Today, the work Dr. Goodall started continues at Gombe Stream Research Center, providing data for countless studies and as well as critical information about habitat health and land use.
Stunning new video narrated by Dr. Jane Goodall. With special thanks to award-winning director Steve Gordon of Untitled Films.
Research continues over five decades after famous primatologist first arrived in what is now Gombe National Park.
July 14, 2015 marks the 55th anniversary of the first time Dr. Jane Goodall set foot in what is now known as Gombe Stream National Park and launched her pioneering research with wild chimpanzees.
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) has been working to ready three islands in the Kouilou River for the transfer of 100 chimpanzees currently living at Tchimpounga. On these islands, chimpanzees live in a much more natural, forested environment while still receiving care from Tchimpounga staff.
