Jane Goodall Institute


The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global wildlife and environment conservation organization headquartered in Vienna, Virginia. It was founded in 1977 by English primatologist Jane Goodall.[1]

The institute has offices in more than twenty-five countries around the world.[2]

ActivitiesEdit

Protecting Great ApesEdit

JGI works to protect chimpanzees and other primates by supporting sanctuaries, law enforcement efforts to reduce illegal trafficking, and public education to protect endangered species in the wild.[3]

Improving Gender and Health OutcomesEdit

JGI achieves this through community-centered health projects, improvements to water supplies, and programs designed to keep girls in school.[4]

Promoting Sustainable LivelihoodsEdit

JGI does this through improved agricultural practices, community-managed microcredit programs, and sustainable production techniques that increase incomes while protecting forests[5] and watersheds.[6]
