The Jane Goodall Institute Belgium – Board Members

Board Members The Jane Goodall Institute Belgium Time Commitment: 2-4 days a month Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot in what is now known as Gombe Stream National Park in 1960 when she launched her pioneering research with wild chimpanzees. She was only 26 years old. Her research project was unlike any other and has taught us so much about our closest cousins in the animal kingdom. In the 1980s, rampant deforestation and its effects on the chimpanzees led to the chimpanzee numbers declining in Africa. This compelled Jane to broaden her research focus to include conservation. Knowing that local communities are key to protecting chimpanzees, she redefined traditional conservation with an approach that recognises the central role people play in the well-being of animals and habitat. In 1991, when a group of young people confided their own deep concerns, she invited them to co-found Roots & Shoots, a program at work with young people in 100 countries to foster the informed generation of conservation leaders our world so urgently needs. JGI Belgium was established with a vision of a healthy planet where people make compassionate choices to live sustainably and in harmony with each other, the environment and other animals. JGI Belgium […]
