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.

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.

For centuries, medicinal plants used by traditional healers have been at the heart of health care in Tanzania. Today, this is largely because most of the population cannot afford the high price of imported drugs. Sadly, indigenous medical knowledge and the forests where many medicinal plants are found are disappearing at an alarming rate.

JGI Celebrates 35th Anniversary!

On Saturday, February 25, 2012, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) turned 35!
