The Jane Goodall Institute advances the power of individuals to take informed and compassionate action to improve the environment for all living things.
JGI works in seven African countries and across the United States. The goals of our programs in Africa are to ensure the long-term protection of wild ape populations and their habitat, to preserve biodiversity, and to support the development of sustainable livelihoods for local populations in ecologically-significant areas. These goals are being achieved through improved conservation practices in national parks and protected areas, increased capacity of governments and communities, and community-centered development initiatives in the areas of education, health, and economic advancement. In the United States, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Program helps young people develop leadership skills through youth-driven design and implementation of service-learning projects that make a positive difference for all living things.
