Jane Receives Minerva Award

On Tuesday, Jane took part in the one-of-a-kind California Women's Conference hosted by Maria Shriver.

From Madeleine Albright to Katie Couric to Sir Richard Branson, Jane joined an A-list line-up of conference speakers. Jane, along with 3 other pioneering women, was selected to receive the special Minerva Award this year.

Dr. Jane's Keynote at the AZA Convention

After Seattle, it was on to Portland, where Jane spoke at the  Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) conference. Jane spoke about the educational role of zoos and how Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, an international youth service program, is a natural fit for zoos interested in expanding their youth outreach.

Jane and the Chocolate Factory

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!)

Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

It’s day 3 in New York City and Jane is at it again, signing books and sharing success stories about species conservation. This time she’s at the Barnes & Noble book store in Union Square. A great crowd of supporters and book fans gave Jane a warm welcome as she signed hundreds of books and spoke to the audience.

Behind the Scenes at 'Good Morning America'

 While Jane was in New York City she had the opportunity to stop by the Good Morning America show to discuss her book, Hope for Animals and Their World. As you can imagine this meant a pretty early morning for Jane!  The show went on live around 8 a.m., and was broadcast to millions of homes around the country. Jane spoke about her hope for animals around the world, including China’s giant panda, which is featured in the book.
