Community Centered Conservation
Jane traveled to Seattle, Washington on September 12th to visit Theo Chocolate company, maker of chocolate bars that have Jane's "Good for All" seal of approval. While there, Jane not only spoke about her new book, Hope for Animals and Their World, but also got a behind-the-scenes view of Theo's chocolate-making process. (You can pick up a bar of the delicious Theo Jane Goodall chocolate in our online store in time for Halloween!)
Learn about JGI's work in Africa and around the world: chimpanzee behavioral research at Gombe National Park in Tanzania, our Tchimpounga sanctuary for chimp orphans, our work with communities to promote sustainable livelihoods, and our global youth program, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.
JGI's TACARE program works with villagers to develop sustainable livelihoods and improve health care and education in Kigoma villages. This holistic approach ensures villagers are better-positioned to think about and work towards long-term conservation. One local woman who participated in our family planning programs said: "Thank you for giving me my life."
