"To be with Jane Goodall is like walking with Mahatma Gandhi."

The Boston Globe

Jane Goodall is a primate researcher, environmental activist, UN Messenger of Peace and probably the most famous scientist of our time. She has written more than 40 scientific books and children’s books, and made countless films, including productions for the National Geographic Society and the BBC. Since the mid-1980s, Jane has dedicated her life entirely to the preservation of our planet. She founded the Jane Goodall Institute, with 31 offices worldwide, as well as the youth organization Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, with 150,000 active members – children and young people – in nearly 100 countries. To date, Jane Goodall spends an average of 300 days a year travelling around the world, talking about threats to chimpanzees and to the environment, and about the reasons why she is hopeful that together we can save the world.
