Youth

Support Roots & Shoots

Through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is dedicated to cultivating a generation of global citizens. To maintain and build the Roots & Shoots network and our educational programs on the ground, we rely upon the help and support of our members, individual donors, corporations, foundations and other organizations. The ways that we can work together are diverse.

Energetic Mambou

Mambou is growing quickly.  Nothing remains of the tiny, exhausted, disoriented baby chimpanzee who arrived at Tchimpounga some time ago.  Thanks to the Jane Goodall Institute, particularly Tchimpounga’s caregivers, Mambou is now a strong and energetic chimpanzee.  He plays and laughs with his friends all day long.  No one can beat Mambou in his games.  Even Makasi, the chimp group leader, is exhausted after playing with Mambou.

 

Dr. Goodall Urges U.S. Senate to End Invasive Medical Testing

On Tuesday, May 24, 2012, Dr. Jane Goodall submitted written testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Water and Wildlife.  The subcommittee held a hearing on several bills, including S.810, the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act of 2011 which calls for ending invasive medical testing on all captive chimpanzees in the U.S.

In her testimony, Dr. Goodall urged support for ending invasive medical research on chimpanzees, as called for in the bill.
