JGI Celebrates World Health Day!

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.

Happy Birthday Jane!

Today is a special day! It's Jane Goodall's birthday.

As Jane turns 78 years young, she is spending her birthday in one of her favorite places on Earth...other than Gombe National Park that is! She's watching the annual migration of the sandhill cranes in Nebraska's Plate River Valley. Of course, Jane is never one to take a day off like the rest of us and so she is also busily finalizing her latest book while in the middle of her spring 2012 North American speaking tour.

Staff Spotlight: Bill Wallauer

Today, Bill is a sought-after speaker for adults and youth. His infectious personality, great stories and chimpanzee multimedia presentation help audiences understand the chimpanzees’ behavior and emotional capacity, and the similarities and differences between humans and chimps. Bill’s passion for the chimps he knows so intimately truly makes him the Jane Goodall Institute’s “Chimp Champion.”

JGI Celebrates World Water Day!

Water is one of the world’s most important natural resources. As such, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is providing local people access to clean water by renovating contaminated water supplies, constructing wells, protecting natural springs, improving sanitation, and preserving valuable forest watersheds.

Message from Dr. Jane: Marking the 21st Anniversary of Roots & Shoots

Here we are at the beginning of 2012 about to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program. Over the last two decades, Roots & Shoots has grown from just 12 high school students from nine different schools in Tanzania to a worldwide movement of young people who are dedicated to realizing a vision for a better world. I couldn’t be more proud of what they have accomplished.
