Founded by renowned primatologist Jane Goodall, the Jane Goodall Institute is a global organisation that empowers people to make a difference for all living things. In the UK Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots groups work in hundreds of schools inspiring young people to take action for people, animals and the environment. We also raise awareness of the need for conservation, community development and about chimpanzees in Africa. Our projects in Africa are groundbreaking and globally renowned for effectively helping local people take charge of the conservation and development of their own communities, and also help the chimpanzees who they live alongside.
In the 50 years since Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in what is now Tanzania’s Gombe National Park, the chimpanzee behavioural research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things. Read more about the incredible impact of the 50 years since Dr Goodall's research began.
