Growing human population has increased deforestation in Africa, which reduces chimpanzee habitat, driving the species toward extinction, and accelerates climate change. The Jane Goodall Institute works with local villagers to teach reforestation and sustainable farming methods to help preserve the rainforests of Africa.

Introducing Twins Golden and Glitter

The only known living twin chimpanzees in the wild, Golden and Glitter rely not only on the love and nurturing of their mother Gremlin and older sister Gaia, but on the strong bond they have with each other.

Gorillas Are at Risk

Like chimpanzees, gorillas are endangered. Dr. Goodall discusses some of the threats facing these magnificent creatures and how you can help save them.

 

Promoting Sustainable Agriculture

As part of our conservation strategy, the Jane Goodall Institute works with local communities to spread knowledge about sustainable farming and forestry practices. Traditional slash-and-burn practices fragment chimpanzee habitat, lead to dangerous soil erosion on hillsides, and force local women to walk longer and longer distances for fuel wood.
