The Jane Goodall Institute relies entirely on the generosity of its supporters. Any donation, no matter how small, really makes a difference to the work we do both in Africa and the UK.

Dr Goodall’s pioneering study of wild chimpanzees, which began more than 50 years ago in Tanzania, revolutionised how we think about both chimpanzees and ourselves. Her research in Africa continues to this day and is the longest consecutive field study ever undertaken of any group of animals in the wild. Today Jane Goodall combines her scientific work with international advocacy on behalf of both wild and captive chimpanzees, other animals and a variety of conservation issues.

Tchimpounga Sanctuary has more than 150 chimpanzees (and some other primates) in its care and is the largest refuge for chimpanzees that are orphaned through the bush meat trade (the commercial hunting of wild animals for food) in Africa. The centre is in the process of being upgraded and expanded and is a major resource and focus for the fight against the bush meat trade. The sanctuary is also developing community centred conservation programmes for the local community.

Your donations will cover all sorts of urgent requirements. £20 will buy some formula to feed an infant chimpanzee for one week.
