JGI UK’s mission is to make a difference for all living things through conservation, research and education.
Jane Goodall is one of the world's most famous conservationists and scientists. Her pioneering study of wild chimpanzees began 55 years ago in Tanzania and revolutionised how we think about both chimpanzees and ourselves. JGI UK makes a difference 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 inspire young people to take positive action on the environment on behalf of all the planet's inhabitants
In addition, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots programme works in the US, Africa, and globally.
