Baraka has been working at the Gombe Stream Research Center as a Research Assistant for 15 years. On an average day he collects data on chimpanzees in the field, painstakingly recording every action of each chimpanzee he has been tasked with observing. This B-record data may be used in future studies, books, and/or films aimed at teaching us more about chimpanzees and their social structure.
In November 2014, the Jane Goodall Institute participated at the IUCN World Parks Congress in Australia with the support of JGI Global and especially Polly Cevallos a member of JGI's global board. Congress materials have just been made available online and JGI's presentations are outlined below. Described as the "landmark forum on protected areas," experts gathered to share information at the Congress, and work together towards the creation of an agenda for protected areas conservation.
