In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is today Tanzania, and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.

Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, will speak to young people at an event hosted by the Highland Facilitator Team in Inverness, Scotland. The event will be held at the Eden Court Theatre, Inverness on September 2, 2012. She will be joined by Sir John Lister Kaye, founder of Aigas Field Center, on stage.
During her busy trip to Tanzania in July, Jane attended the launch and blessing of a project involving local members of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots and the Tanzania Portland Cement Company (TPCC), also known as TwigaCement. The goal of the “Twiga Project” is to rehabilitate and restore cement quarries while promoting environmental sustainability and conservation in Tanzania. The project is currently scheduled to run until April 2013.
