Jane Goodall Institute

The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global wildlife and environment conservation organization headquartered in Washington, DC.[1] It was founded in 1977 by English primatologist Jane Goodall.[2]

The institute has offices in more than twenty-five countries around the world.[3]

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.[4] The Chimp Eden Sanctuary in South Africa is one of the institute's sanctuaries and is located in a forested reserve between Nelspruit and Barberton.[5][6]

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.[7]

Promoting Sustainable LivelihoodsEdit

JGI does this through improved agricultural practices, community-managed microcredit programs, and sustainable production techniques that increase incomes while protecting forests[8] and watersheds.[9]

CookbookEdit

In 2021, the institute published a cookbook titled The Jane Goodall Institute #EatMeatless."[10] The book's forward was written by Jane Goodall, a longtime vegetarian and now vegan.[11] Vegan expert Avery Yale Kamila included the cookbook on her list of 2021's best cookbooks.[12] Food writer Mark Bittman interviewed Jane Goodall about the book on his podcast.[13] Veganuary listed the book no. 1 on its list of Best Vegan Cookbooks.[14]
