Last month, Dr. Goodall traveled to Paris as part of a 3-day visit to the City of Light. While there she promoted the work of the Jane Goodall Institute-France and attended a number of events to highlight the work JGI is doing in Africa. She also had meetings with government officials to discuss ways in which France is making positive environmental choices. The American University of Paris Roots & Shoots group shared some of their amazing projects. Dr. Goodall even met her childhood hero, Tarzan! Take a look at the trip in pictures.
Dr. Goodall wrote the following tribute to honor Dr. Carole Noon, founder of Save the Chimps, a sanctuary in Fort Pierce, Florida, which houses 282 chimpanzees released from research laboratories, the entertainment industry, or life with humans as "pets." Dr. Noon died in May after a battle with pancreatic cancer. A memorial for her will be held July 18 in Fort Pierce.
At an international forestry conference in Buenos Aires this October, Jane Goodall will make the case for habitat protection and its critical role in species conservation and targeted efforts to save endangered species.
Jane Goodall welcomes the opportunity to speak to groups in both public and private settings. She travels and lectures more than 300 days per year, including an average of 75-90 days in the United States. Despite her extensive travel schedule, Dr. Goodall receives far more speaking invitations than she is able to accept.
Some of Jane’s most important discoveries, and her universal insights.

If you've ever seen Dr. Jane Goodall speak, you were probably welcomed with a treat. Dr. Goodall greets just about every audience in "chimpanzee."
Like chimpanzees, gorillas are endangered. Dr. Goodall discusses some of the threats facing these magnificent creatures and how you can help save them.
Jane sent this message of thanks to the 15,000 people who signed her 75th birthday card online and those who made gifts to support JGI's work.
We know so much about chimpanzees today thanks to the hard work of animal researchers like Jane Goodall. But, essentially, chimps remain a mystery. Even Jane, who knows chimpanzees better than anyone just about anyone, has said she can only guess at what's going on inside a chimpanzee’s mind.
