A paper published in this week’s issue of the journal Science suggests that humans and other primates share certain aging patterns that were previously thought to be unique to humans. In addition to uncovering new similarities among primate species, the research findings may ultimately bring us closer to answering such questions as: Why do women live longer than men?
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) recently brought together key players to support Tanzania in developing a coordinated system for monitoring the carbon stored in its forests.
This year, all over the world, we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Jane Goodall’s pioneering chimpanzee research and her inspiring vision for our future.
Dr. Goodall shares what fifty years of research at Gombe National Park means to her.
A new, 4-year grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will allow JGI and its partners to expand community-centered conservation programs in western Tanzania, a region rich in biodiversity, including critical populations of chimpanzees. Our partners include the Tanzanian district councils of Kigoma and Mpanda, The Nature Conservancy and the Frankfurt Zoological Society.
