Take a stand against the illegal commercial bushmeat trade!

With the increased commercialization of the illegal bushmeat trade across Central and Western Africa, thousands of adult chimpanzees and other endangered animals like elephants and gorillas are killed every year.

 

Press Room

The Jane Goodall Institute's (JGI) Press Room is a place for journalists and the public to learn more about the history and work of Dr. Jane Goodall and JGI. JGI continues Dr. Goodall’s pioneering research on chimpanzee behavior—research that transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats.

Study Corner - Scientific Discoveries

Jane Goodall made lots of important scientific studies during more than 35 years at Gombe. The most surprising was this: Chimpanzees make their own tools!

One morning in November 1960, Jane spotted two chimps, David Graybeard and Goliath, squatting on a termite mound. As she watched, David picked up a small twig, stripped off the leaves, and poked this tool into a termite mound to get termites.
