“Reason for Hope” with
Dr. Jane Goodall
In 1960, Jane Goodall first set foot in what is today Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. Little did she know that she was about to embark on a groundbreaking chimpanzee behavioral study that would rock the scientific community and redefine our understanding of animals and, ultimately, ourselves. Likewise, she probably never imaged that she would one day leave Gombe and begin a quest to empower others to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment we all share. In her speech, “Reason for Hope,” Dr. Goodall will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees, from her early observations and experiences to the latest news and stories from the field. She will also discuss the work of the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues her pioneering research. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program.
