THE JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE
Perhaps the most well-known conservationist of the 20th century, Dr Jane Goodall DBE is a world-renowned primatologist, ethologist, humanitarian, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace who founded the Jane Goodall institute in 1977.
JGI recognises protecting chimpanzees and their habitat cannot be done without the combined efforts of farmers and villagers who share their home with chimps in areas such as the Congo Basin. With offices in 35 countries JGI works with rural communities to implement sustainable practices that provide the best deal for humans and chimps while having a minimal impact on the environment.
Donations to the Jane Goodall Institute go towards funding projects to curb rapid deforestation, rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned chimps, empowering communities in the Congo Basin to engage in sustainable livelihoods and working with young people in countries such as Australia to create community-based solutions to the challenges in their neighbourhoods.
