What would you ask Jane Goodall? Submit your questions below and they might get used on stage! So get questioning!
In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is today Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. But with her unyielding patience and characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures. She managed to open a window into their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated and remain so to this day.
Today, Jane’s work revolves around inspiring action on behalf of endangered species, particularly chimpanzees and encouraging people to do their part to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment we all share. Among Jane Goodall’s many books are Harvest for Hope and Reason for Hope.
The Jane Goodall Institute works to protect the famous chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania and other parts of Africa, but recognizes this can’t be accomplished without a comprehensive approach that addresses the needs of local people who are critical to chimpanzee survival. The Institute’s community-centered conservation programs in Africa include sustainable development projects that engage local people as true partners. These programs began around Gombe in 1994 and have since been replicated in other parts of the continent.
Similarly, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, which Jane started with a group of Tanzanian students in 1991, is today the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program for young people from preschool through university with nearly 150,000 members in more than 120 countries.
