Dr. Goodall Urges U.S. Senate to End Invasive Medical Testing

On Tuesday, May 24, 2012, Dr. Jane Goodall submitted written testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Water and Wildlife.  The subcommittee held a hearing on several bills, including S.810, the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act of 2011 which calls for ending invasive medical testing on all captive chimpanzees in the U.S.

In her testimony, Dr. Goodall urged support for ending invasive medical research on chimpanzees, as called for in the bill.

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.
