In Detail

Dr. Goodhall established the Jane Goodall Institute in 1977, which continues the Gombe research and is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. Today, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots connects hundreds of thousands of youth in more than 130 countries who take action to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment. She was sought-out to speak at this year's World Economic Forum at the launch of an initiative to plant one trillion trees by 2030, where she delivered moving remarks on shifting the culture around conservation. Her groundbreaking work is also the subject of a new documentary Jane: The Hope, as well as a new multimedia exhibit at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C.


Dr. Goodall takes the audience on an ecological journey, discussing highlights and low points of her experiences in the jungle. She shows how progress is helping research (DNA analysis) and hurting the environment (clear-cutting). She draws a dozen parallels between primate and human behaviour, making the point that we really aren't all that different.
