Jane Goodall Institute

Event information

Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Chimpanzee Eden, a game reserve and animal sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees, is home to chimps that have been misplaced from their natural habitats in Africa.

Chimpanzees in the wild may be extinct within the next 10 - 20 years if current trends cannot be reversed. The goal of the chimpanzee sanctuary is to rescue chimpanzees that have survived the bush meat trade, been orphaned, traded in the illegal pet market, or rescued from being traumatised for entertainment in circuses, beach resorts and night clubs.

The JGI is also widely recognised for establishing innovative community-centred conservation and development programmes in Africa. Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Institute's global environmental and humanitarian youth programme, is active at all ages in more than 50 countries. In the past decades Roots & Shoots has impacted the lives of young people in more than 100 countries.
