Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute
& UN Messenger of Peace

Dr. Jane Goodall DBE is Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a United Nations Messenger of Peace. In July 1960 she travelled from England to what is now Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees at Gombe.  Through 60 years of ground-breaking work, she has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. With 23 Jane Goodall Institutes around the world and the Roots & Shoots programme empowering young people in more than 65 countries, her mission is to inspire us all to make our world a better place.

Dr. Goodall has received many honours, is author of books for both adults and children.  She features in many films and countless documentaries and is delighted to support the ongoing work of  the Tenkile Conservation Alliance as Patron.
