Trustees, The Jane Goodall Institute

Trustees: Finance, Governance, Fundraising & Commercial The Jane Goodall Institute Meetings are held in Central London in the evening In 1960, Jane Goodall travelled from England to Tanzania to get close to wild chimpanzees, document their behaviour, and shed light on our own evolutionary past. She won their trust and very quickly made the first observations of chimps making and using tools. She shone a light on the complexity and richness of chimpanzee communities, their human-like communications such as pats on the back, and much more. In the 1980s, rampant deforestation and its effects on the chimpanzees in Africa compelled Jane to broaden her research focus to include conservation. JGI UK was set up with a mission to make a difference for all living things through conservation, research and education, and it does this through programmes involving: Community Centred Conservation: Contributing to the preservation of chimpanzees and their habitats by combining conservation with education and promotion of sustainable livelihoods in local communities. Primate Care and Research: through study of primates in the wild, and sanctuaries for orphans of the entertainment and bushmeat trades. Environmental and Humanitarian Education: through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots international youth education programme which aims to […]
