Tanzania

The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) works in western Tanzania to reduce human population pressures and protect chimpanzees and their forest habitat.  In 1994, JGI's community-centered conservation approach was developed through the implementation of the Lake Tanganyika Catchment, Reforestation and Education (TACARE) program in the area in and around Gombe National Park.  Since then, the TACARE model has been expanded from Gombe National Park to larger and more pristine chimpanzee habitat to the south.
