Fifty years ago last July, Dr. Jane Goodall first arrived in what is now Gombe National Park in Tanzania, Africa. the chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded to a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.
Today Jane’s work revolves around mobilizing action on behalf of all wildlife species, but particularly chimpanzees, who are endangered.
The Jane Goodall Institute works to protect the famous chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania, but recognizes this can’t be accomplished without a holistic approach that addresses the real needs of local people.
The efforts of the Institute include sustainable development programs that engage communities as true partners. These programs began around Gombe but now spread across the continent.
