REGISTRATION IS HANDLED BY ROTARY INTERNATIONAL. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE ABOUT REGISTRATION.
Dr. Goodall will be giving a lecture on June 26, 2013, at the Rotary International Convention during the Plenary Session four from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
On Sunday, June 7th at a private event in Stockholm, The Perfect World Foundation honored Jane with the “The Fragile Rhino” prize along with naming her conservationist of the year for 2015. The founders of The Perfect World Foundation, Ragnhild and Lars Jacobsson presented the award to Jane, who received it with representatives from the Jane Goodall Institute Sweden.
Jane’s life has greatly changed since her days at Gombe studying chimpanzees. Instead of spending time below the forest canopy with the chimps, she now spends much of her time in lecture venues, hotels, and airports, hopping around from one destination to another to spread her message of hope and inspire millions to make the world a better place. At 81, Jane is a road warrior, traveling nearly 300 days worldwide each year since 1986, with a mission to educate people that we must act NOW if we want to save the planet and animals we love so much.
Time: 6:00 p.m.
In her speech, Sowing the Seeds of Hope, Dr. Goodall will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees―from her early observations and experiences to the latest news and stories from the field. Her latest publication, “Seeds of Hope”, dives into the world of plants, exploring interesting anomalies about the natural world and how we can protect the place we call home.
