Have hope.
Be the change.

Our planet is in trouble.  The climate crisis is here. 
Species are disappearing at rapid rates.

But, we can change this. Together, we can be the solution.

The Jane Goodall Institute Australia is cultivating change today. We nurture incredible young leaders through our Roots & Shoots program. We collaborate with local communities across Africa to empower women – so animals, people and the environment happily co-exist. We rehabilitate rescued chimps at our Tchimpounga sanctuary. We promote our founder’s vision to inspire millions to turn hope into action.

What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Dr Jane Goodall
