The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global community conservation organisation founded by Dr. Goodall in 1977. By protecting chimpanzees and inspiring action to conserve the natural world we all share, we improve the lives of people, animals and the environment. JGI makes a difference through community-centered conservation and the innovative use of science and technology. We work closely with local communities around the world, inspiring hope through the collective power of individual action. Through Roots & Shoots, our youthled community action and learning programme, young people acquire the knowledge and skills to become compassionate conservation leaders in their own backyards. Our vision is for a healthy planet where people make compassionate choices to live sustainably and in harmony with each other, the environment and other animals.
