Join the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada (JGI Canada) on Sunday, July 8, 2018 in the Earth Rangers Studio located within the Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity. Discover how JGI Canada protects chimpanzees in the wild and in their world-class sanctuary in Africa.

JGI Canada partners with communities in the Congo to preserve important chimpanzee habitat. The organization also supports the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, which is home to more than 100 chimps rescued from wildlife trafficking.

In Canada, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program equips young people to take on action projects to support sustainable neighbourhoods.

Jane continues her work today by travelling an average of 300 days per year speaking in packed auditoriums, school gymnasiums, and conference centres about the threats facing chimpanzees, other environmental crises, and her reasons for hope that we will ultimately solve the problems that we have imposed on the earth.
