During her summer tour of Africa, Jane spent time at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center (TCRC) in the Republic of Congo. For more than 20 years, the Institute has worked to ensure the well-being of orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees confiscated by Congolese authorities as part of their efforts to combat the illegal commercial bushmeat and pet trades. JGI cares for these confiscated chimpanzees at TCRC, the largest chimpanzee sanctuary in Africa.

On Friday, Aug. 2, 2013, Dr. Jane Goodall will give a free public lecture at the Brookhouse International School, inspiring youth to be "agents of environmental conservation".
After her successful Rotary appearance in Portugal, Jane left for an extended African tour. She made stops in South Africa and Tanzania and then traveled to Uganda. On July 9, while at Uganda’s Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Jane released 17 African Grey Parrots. In April of 2010, the birds were confiscated after being illegally shipped to Bulgaria. Jane was delighted to be on hand to watch the birds’ return to the wilds of Africa!
If you’ve been wondering what Jane has been up to this week, you’ve come to the right place! Jane and members of the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) global team took part in Rotary’s 104th International Convention in Lisbon, Portugal.
