The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) advances the power of individuals to improve the environment for all living things.

While continuing Dr Jane Goodall’s efforts to protect chimpanzees, JGI has become a leader in innovative conservation that takes a holistic approach to our planet.  The Institute’s global youth programme inspires young people of all ages to become environmental and humanitarian leaders through hands-on projects within areas of the human community, animals (including domestic animals) and the environment. They discuss local problems and create effective solutions.

There are now about 150,000 groups around the world in over 100 countries, with members from pre-school through to university and beyond.

At the forefront of our work is endangered species, where we implement many effective worldwide campaigns to help save the plight of elephants, rhinos and tigers.
