London: Dr. Goodall’s Speech at Hope 4 Apes Event
On December 6, 2010, Dr. Goodall will be a featured speaker at the Hope 4 Apes event organized by the Ape Alliance. Hosted by Sir David Attenborough, this inspiring evening will bring together experts from around the world to discuss the current state of great ape conservation. Dr. Birute Galdikas, Dr. Ian Redmond and Dr. Jo Thompson are among the other distinguished speakers.
Dr. Goodall will discuss her historic chimpanzee behavioral research, which today is one of the longest running studies of animals in the wild. This year marks a monumental milestone for the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and its founder. Fifty years ago, Dr. Goodall first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in what is now Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.
The Hope 4 Apes event begins at 7 p.m. Please note that ticketing is handled by the venue. Ticket proceeds will benefit a number of great ape conservation efforts, including JGI’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center located in the Republic of Congo.
