Jane Goodall Institute

Dame Jane Morris Goodall formerly Baroness Jane van Lawick-Goodall, is an English primatologist and anthropologist.

Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Goodall is best known for her over 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees since she first went to Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania in 1960.

She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and the Roots & Shoots programme, and she has worked extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. She has served on the board of the Nonhuman Rights Project since its founding in 1996.

In April 2002, she was named a UN Messenger of Peace. Dr. Goodall is also honorary member of the World Future Council.

And most recently in 2019 Jane was awarded the Luxembourg Peace Prize that aims to recognize individuals or groups working on peace around the world.

She most recently gave a keynote speech at Sziget Festival in Hungary and the ParlayMe team was there to document it!

Today the Jane Goodall Institute is a global community conservation organization that advances the vision and work of Dr. Jane Goodall. By protecting chimpanzees and inspiring people to conserve the natural world we all share, we improve the lives of people, animals and the environment. Everything is connected—everyone can make a difference.
