Jane Meets Tarzan

Last month, Dr. Goodall traveled to Paris as part of a 3-day visit to the City of Light. While there she promoted the work of the Jane Goodall Institute-France and attended a number of events to highlight the work JGI is doing in Africa. She also had meetings with government officials to discuss ways in which France is making positive environmental choices. The American University of Paris Roots & Shoots group shared some of their amazing projects. Dr. Goodall even met her childhood hero, Tarzan! Take a look at the trip in pictures.
