Jane Goodall Institute
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) was founded by Dr. Jane Goodall with the inspirational message that the well-being of our world relies on people taking an active interest in all living things. We believe that every individual matters and makes an impact. We are a global nonprofit committed to community-centered conservation, whether it be protecting chimpanzees and great apes in Africa while improving the lives of communities around ape habitat, or supporting youth-led efforts around the world to improve their own communities.
WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES
JGI supports community-centered conservation throughout Africa’s Congo Basin, engaging with individual stakeholders to garner long-term conservation impact.
Jane Goodall Institute support young people in more than 130 countries across the globe as they work make positive change in their own communities. Our cutting-edge use of technology ties our high-impact conservation work in Africa to our citizen-science projects led by youth groups across the globe.
