The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) founded in 1977 by Dr. Jane Goodall, United Nations Messenger of Peace, continues her pioneering research on chimpanzee behaviour started more than 50 years ago—research that transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It is also widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centred conservation and development programmes in Africa, as well as through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the global environmental and humanitarian program for youth of all ages, which has groups in more than 120 countries.
At the conclusion of the screening, Jane Goodall Institute’s Alice Macharia, program director of Africa Programs, and Shawn Sweeney, national manager of youth outreach and engagement, will discuss JGI’s work in Africa and around the world to help protect chimpanzees while promoting care for people, animals, and the environment we all share.
This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the Institute while enjoying the chance to see chimpanzees on the big screen like you’ve never seen them before. Refreshments will be provided.
