On September 24, 2011, environmental leaders, philanthropists, politicians and celebrities will assemble at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Calif., for a unique evening with a very special woman: world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and humanitarian Dr. Jane Goodall.

Unlike the numerous lectures that Dr. Goodall gives all around the world, on this particular night, in an intimate setting on stage, she will answer questions and tell stories about her life, her family and the work of the Jane Goodall Institute, which she founded in 1977.  She will also reveal some personal insights into her favorite things, scariest moments and more.

In between interview segments, Dr. Goodall will recognize the winners of the 2011 Jane Goodall Global Leadership Awards.

This year, we will be paying tribute to a number of extraordinary people and organizations, including:

  • Esri — Excellence in Conservation Science;
  • Lauren Gibson and Adam Anthony — Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership;
  • Renée Gunther — Excellence in Education; 
  • The Walt Disney Company — Corporate Social Responsibility;
  • The Honorable George Miller, U.S. Representative, California, 7th District — Excellence in Public Policy; and
  • Dave Matthews — Responsible Activism in Media and Entertainment.

You can purchase your tickets today on the El Capitan website.  For more information, including sponsorship and ad opportunities, please contact us at events@janegoodall.org.
If you are unable to attend but would like to show your support, please make a donation in honor of the awardees.

Due to a family obligation, James Cameron has reluctantly withdrawn from this event.
