Give the gift that keeps on giving! You can support the chimpanzees at Tchimpounga with a Chimpanzee Guardianship!
After reviewing a report released last week by a committee of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which had been tasked by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) to analyze the necessity of using chimpanzees in biomedical and behavioral research, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) welcomed the committee’s conclusions and recommendations, noting that they represent a paradigm shift in how the United States approaches the use of one of our closest relatives in the animal kingdom in invasive medical research.
On November 7, 2011, Dr. Goodall will give a keynote speech at the Museo de La Plata in Argentina as part of her special autumn tour of Latin America and South America.
In her speech, Dr. Goodall will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees―fromher early observations and experiences to the latest news and stories from the field.
