In April 2012, the staff at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo welcomed a new arrival: a baby girl called Anzac. She was named Anzac because she came to the sanctuary on ANZAC Day (April 25, 2012), a World War I observance for people from Australia and New Zealand, and because, like many war veterans, she had lost an arm.
On July 23, 2012, Dr. Jane stopped by the Little Theatre in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to present local youth Adam Anthony with his 2011 Jane Goodall Global Leadership Award for Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership, as Adam was unable to attend the awards ceremony last year.

Arlington, Virginia—July 14, 2010, marks a monumental milestone for the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and its founder, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE. Fifty years ago, Goodall, who is today a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in what is now Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. 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.
