In 1977, Dr, Jane Goodall founded this institute under her name to continue her vision and lifelong work of saving the natural world and engaging communities to protect their environment. As a scientist and researcher, Goodall traveled to the forests of Gombe and lived with the chimpanzees in their habitat, where her discoveries changed the world's understanding of the endangered species. Now, she has adopted the labels of naturalist, conservationist, humanitarian, peacemaker, and mentor to spread compassion for all living things.
