It’s been almost 60 years since Jane stepped out of a game warden’s boat onto a pebbly beach at what was then the Gombe Stream Game Reserve in Tanzania to begin her life’s work. As a young woman taking that first step into the unknown, Jane’s legacy began in that moment, transforming her first into the woman who redefined man and next into an environmental activist.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you are taking that first step through your legacy — because of you there is hope for the future. You will help safeguard the future of chimpanzees living in the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga sanctuary, help fund habitat conservation and the fight against illegal hunting and trafficking of chimpanzees, and support community-based conservation that improves the lives of local people while saving wildlife.

Your gift will ensure that Jane’s legacy of protecting animals and the environment lives on — long after Jane, and all of us, are gone. It’s imperative that we all take steps now to help secure a future of abundance for the generations to come. We share this planet with remarkable creatures and the wonder of nature should be preserved for our descendants to enjoy as we have. Inspired by Jane’s message it is more crucial than ever to remember that what you leave behind determines what lies ahead.
