She blazed the trail.
The next steps are up to us.

From the beginning, science has been core to the Jane Goodall Institute’s work. We continue to build on the legendary scientific contributions of Dr. Jane Goodall with our field research at Gombe, our chimpanzee sanctuary in Tchimpounga, and community-centered conservation work around the world. Each advance we make in the use of science and technology illuminates new next steps and allows us to better protect the web of life that connects all living things.
Today, we’re using science and technology in ways that were impossible only a decade ago. We hone in on locations for conservation, assess the state of habitat, and track progress in restoring the land to viable chimpanzee habitat.

Make a difference with us.

Change Agents

It’s amazing what happens when people see the difference they can make. We focus on tangible successes that give people reason to hope—and act—for a better world. In East Africa and the Congo Basin, we work with local communities to address their needs and minimize the underlying threats to chimpanzee habitats in the surrounding area.
