On Sunday, June 7th at a private event in Stockholm, The Perfect World Foundation honored Jane with the “The Fragile Rhino” prize along with naming her conservationist of the year for 2015. The founders of The Perfect World Foundation, Ragnhild and Lars Jacobsson presented the award to Jane, who received it with representatives from the Jane Goodall Institute Sweden.
Jane’s life has greatly changed since her days at Gombe studying chimpanzees. Instead of spending time below the forest canopy with the chimps, she now spends much of her time in lecture venues, hotels, and airports, hopping around from one destination to another to spread her message of hope and inspire millions to make the world a better place. At 81, Jane is a road warrior, traveling nearly 300 days worldwide each year since 1986, with a mission to educate people that we must act NOW if we want to save the planet and animals we love so much.
