Gombe National Park in Tanzania, made famous by Jane Goodall’s chimpanzee studies, has become an icon for the global conservation community. The research begun in 1960 has led to groundbreaking discoveries that have changed humanity’s view of itself. While this research effort has effectively preserved the forest and woodland habitat inside Gombe, the continuing deforestation outside park boundaries have endangered local chimpanzee populations and impacted local communities.


The program will continue to support research inside Gombe National Park, and strengthen our efforts to provide local communities with the information and tools needed to manage their natural resources, as well as address development issues.

Long-Term Impact

To ensure the long-term protection of biodiversity in Gombe National Park and its surrounding ecosystem, especially the endangered chimpanzee.
