AboutThe Jane Goodall Institute promotes understanding and protection of endangered Great Apes and their habitat and builds on the legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall, our founder, to empower local people to care for their natural resources and equip young people to take the lead in becoming agents of community change.
The Jane Goodall Institute protects wild chimpanzees and other primates through the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, the largest sanctuary in Africa for primates rescued from wildlife traffickers. We also support law enforcement efforts to reduce illegal trafficking.
The Institute additionally protects important landscapes and endangered species through community-led conservation strategies that address local priority needs. By engaging communities, villagers benefit from conservation efforts and are less dependent on forest resources.
In Canada, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is our youth-led community action and learning program. Through experiential learning that promotes leadership skills, critical thinking and compassion, Roots & Shoots encourages young people to make a meaningful difference in their neighbourhoods and beyond.
Snapshot: JGI Canada’s impact in 2016:
• 150+ chimpanzees are cared for at Tchimpounga sanctuary, which was recently expanded to give chimpanzees 100 times more forest space
• 20 villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo partnered with us to build maternal health clinics and implement a vaccination program
• 18,400 people living along a wildlife corridor gained access to clean water
• 300 new Roots & Shoots groups joined our network
Your generous donation will allow JGI Canada to off-set administrative costs for necessary national and international travel so that a greater portion of our funds raised can go directly to JGI programs.
Thank you for your support!
