“We are moving towards a sustainable future. Our Roots & Shoots membersand other young people share new values. They understand that acquiringmore and more money, more and more stuff, doesn’t give life meaning or  create joy. They are tomorrow’s leaders. And they will lead on behalf of all —animals, people, and the environment.”

JGIPARTNERS
THEARCUSFOUNDATION
The Arcus Great Apes Fund sup-ports conservation efforts thatpromote the survival of the greatapes in the wild and sanctuariesthat offer safety and freedomfrom invasive research and otherforms of human exploitation. In2006, the Arcus Foundationawarded JGI a two-year grant of$450,000, which has allowed usto expand our horizons into theworld of public policy. Our newPublic Policy Department is work-ing to increase US public fundingfor great ape conservationin Africa,Malaysia, and Indonesia, and toimprove legal protection for greatapes in the US.
GOOGLE
With the help of Google Earth, JGIlaunched the Gombe ChimpanzeeBlog in January 2006. The blog isunique because it allows anyoneto experience the wonder ofGombe through the eyes of thepeople who live and work there.You can “fly”through GombeNational Park and see houses,paths, oil palm plantations,cassava fields, and otheragricultural activity, as well astrack the paths of chimpanzeesand researchers through thepark. This imagery is a powerfultool to help us visualize thespatial relationships between theforest and land use by humans.Through these images, we gain atrue appreciation for the threatsand challenges we face insaving Gombe.
The involvement of key partners and supporters aroundthe world is integral to JGI’s vision and strategy. Thefour organizations below have been especially importantthis year as we worked to preserve great apes in Africathrough community-centered conservation and othermeans, and as we helped youth connect globally andtake action through Roots & Shoots.
DISNEY
In April 2006, the Disney WildlifeConservation Fund honored Dr.Goodall with an award of $100,000to advance the work of JGI. Theaward is presented to globalorganizations that promote the studyand protection of the world’s wildlifeand ecosystems. In addition, Disney’scommitment to youth outreach andenvironmental stewardship is reflectedin its ongoing support of JGI’s Roots& Shoots program. In 2007, Disneywill host the Roots & Shoots NationalYouth Leadership Retreat at DisneyWorld in Orlando, Florida.

USAID
The US Agency for InternationalDevelopment (USAID) has supportedJGI on numerous projects and hasbeen integral to the growth of theLake Tanganyika CatchmentReforestation and Education(TACARE) program in Kigoma region,Tanzania. In 2006, USAID providedsupport for community-centeredconservation,environmentaleducation, HIV/AIDS testing, andfamily-planning initiatives. Thisincluded a grant for increasingengagement in coastal and marineconservation among primary and
madrassa
school students, as well asa $1.2-million five-year CooperativeGrant Agreement that will incorporateTACARE into a broader framework oflandscape-scale conservation andplanning in the Greater GombeEcosystem in Western Tanzania.
 ALETTERFROMJANE
Dear JGI Members & Friends,
 Although it doesn’t seem possible, this year wasbusier than last, with almost nonstop travel, whichtook me to five continents. While my schedule isoften exhausting, I am kept going by the prospect of planting seeds of change — and hope — wherever Igo. And I am continually inspired by the spirit anddetermination of so many people who are usingtheir lives to make a better world.Visiting Gombe is always a highlight. During my  June visit, as I was walking to Kasekela Point alongthe beach, I turned a corner and there was Gremlin.My favorite living Gombe chimpanzee. How amazingit was to see her carrying her 1-month-old grandsonGodot. He clung to her belly, while her 3-year-oldson Gimli moved through the trees and bushes orrode on her back. This trio was part of a remarkablebut ultimately sad story, which you can read in theresearch section inside. After leaving Gombe, I attended a ceremony withthe US Ambassador to Tanzania, Michael Retzer, tolaunch the Greater Gombe Ecosystem Program.This program, supported by the US Agency forInternational Development, expands TACARE’sefforts to create sustainable livelihoods in the region,adding components such as GIS-based land-useplanning with villagers. It is critical to the future of the people as well as the chimpanzees of the region. We also officially opened our beautiful JGIEducation Centre in Kigoma, which will help teachchildren about conservation and sustainable living.Before leaving Kigoma, I visited the Lugufu RefugeeCamp, home to tens of thousands of refugees fromEastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Here,membership in Roots & Shoots groups has grownsteadily over the past five years. One successfulproject is the humane raising of chickens. The hensprovide eggs and meat for much-needed protein anda source of income for families. The project alsoteaches children about the nature of animals. (Thereis no history of domestication in their culture.) TheRoots & Shoots youth there twice demonstrated thepower of the Roots & Shoots message (“knowledge,compassion, action”) when they rescued wildanimals they found in the woods instead of killingthem as some other children suggested. JGI in Tanzania has really taken off. There arenow more than 600 Roots & Shoots groups in thecountry and, thanks to Executive Director PancrasNgalason, we have a wonderful new office near my house in Dar es Salaam.Before leaving Tanzania, I arranged a meeting with new President Jakaya Kikwete. When the day came, however, he was so busy it seemed ourmeeting wouldn’t happen. But, as luck would haveit, the president was flying to Arusha that evening —and so was I! He offered me a lift in the presidentialplane, and for over an hour I had the opportunity to talk with him about everything that JGI andRoots & Shoots are doing in Tanzania. He was very interested and told me that he planned to putenvironmental protection high on his agenda.(As, indeed, he has.)
“I’m amazed at how much JGI has grown around the world,how many wonderful initiatives have sprung up.Together, we truly are sowing seeds of hope.”
I had an unforgettable experience in January 2006, when I was awarded France’s Légiond’honneur and UNESCO’s 60th Anniversary GoldMedal Award — on the same amazing day! I hadthe opportunity to discuss JGI’s programs both withthe Director-General of UNESCO, Mr. KoïchiroMatsuura, and with the then Prime Minister of France, Dominique de Villepin.During a visit in March to our TchimpoungaSanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees, I saw oldGregoire and his companion LaVielle. Gregoirelooks incredibly fit for an old man of 63 — especially given his hard life! And LaVielle is finally enjoyingher garden. For two years after we rescued her, sherefused to step off concrete. We shall never know  what horrors she endured in her earlier captivity. AsI sat on the ground beside her, she playfully handedme little pieces of grass, leaves, even earth. Andthere was one beautiful moment when I held outmy hand and she reached out and touched my fingers. Sanctuary Manager Rebecca Atencia,Fernando Turmo, and I discussed our plans toenlarge the reserve and find a suitable place toreintroduce some of the chimpanzees into the wild.My North American tours were hectic as always.In Orlando, Florida, I received an award of $100,000 from the Disney Wildlife ConservationFund for our conservation work; in Chicago,Illinois, I met with our newest regional Roots &Shoots coordinator; and in Danbury, Connecticut,I attended a truly inspirational R&S CollegeSummit. Then there was a meeting with Googleand Google Earth that was absolutely fascinating.For the first time, I was introduced to our Gombeblog, and we had a brainstorming session withGoogle.org, a foundation that helps environmentaland social causes. At the International Primatological Society annual meeting in Uganda, I met many old friendsfrom the primate research community. There werefascinating presentations by researchers from aroundthe world. At the concluding banquet, I inauguratedthe first “primate karaoke.” I had ended my talk  with a rousing chimpanzee call, in which I was joined by other chimpanzee folk. I then persuadedthose studying other primates to come to the mikeand imitate the calls of their study animals. It was wonderful. There were pant-hoots, roars, grunts,and songs of orangutans, gorillas, gibbons, howlermonkeys, baboons, and others!My year ended with a four-week tour in Asiaduring which I visited JGI and R&S projects in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, andSingapore. In South Korea, I spoke at a receptionhonoring Ban Ki-moon, the new Secretary-Generalof the United Nations, and had the opportunity totell him about the ways in which Roots & Shoots isspreading seeds of global peace and about ourefforts to support the UN International Peace Day  with our Giant Peace Doves.Throughout the year, there were so many otherevents, meetings, lectures, interviews, andconferences — there simply isn’t space to mentionmore than a few. When I think back over the year,I’m amazed at how much JGI has grown around the world, how many wonderful initiatives have sprungup. Together, we truly are sowing seeds of hope,moving towards a sustainable future for ourchildren. And none of it would be possible withoutyour support and help. I thank you from the depthsof my heart. With my love, Jane Goodall
