Watch how the Jane Goodall Institute uses mapping technology on mobile devices for forest monitoring and chimpanzee conservation.
Today, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) joins the World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations and individuals around the globe in commemorating World Health Day.
JGI is committed to supporting a broad array of measures that ensure the health of local communities in areas where we work to protect chimpanzees and their habitat. By improving the health of these rural populations, we can significantly enhance their quality of life and enable them to become partners in conserving the natural resources upon which they depend.
Each week, we share new images of chimpanzees. In general, the images are of the chimpanzee groups our researchers observe in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, and of the residents that our team cares for at the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of the Congo.
From now through the opening of Disneynature's "Chimpanzee", we will share images of the chimpanzees from the film.
Check back each week for new photos.
