To celebrate the kickoff of Dr. Jane's Spring 2013 USA lecture tour, here are some photos collected from the road!
Dr. Jane gave a lecture at Ohio State University for an audience of more than 1,700 on March 25th.
Today, April 3, is Dr. Goodall's 79th birthday. Every day, we are grateful for all Dr. Goodall does, traveling 300 days a year to spread her message of hope while encouraging all of us to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment.

Jane is receiving the listener-nominated Lifetime E-Chievement Award in recognition of her amazing accomplishments over the course of her life and career.

Through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) trains young people to become effective community leaders. By spearheading projects in their communities that seek to improve the environment and benefit people and animals, Roots & Shoots youth learn what it takes to be an effective leader.
While back in England after the Tournament of Roses festivities, Jane sent the following message to share far and wide:
