 A Letter From Jane
It’s hard to believe that it wasalmost 50 years ago when I arrivedon the sandy beach o Gombeor the rst time — a young woman with no degree, no ormaltraining, tasked with learningabout chimpanzee behaviour.oday there are institutes bearingmy name in more than 20 countriesaround the world, sponsoringcountless exciting programs in thespheres o research, conservation,education, and the humanetreatment o chimpanzees andother animals. It is amazing!he Jane Goodall Institute ismaking a signicant contributionto chimpanzee conservation.In Arica we are:
raising awareness about thedestruction o chimpanzee habitatsand about the bushmeat trade(the commercial huntingo wild animals or ood)
working to improe the lies o localpeople so that they become ourpartners in conseration throughour TACARE (Take Care) program
restoring orested areas
remoing wire snares
and caring or orphan chimpanzeesin our sanctuaries
Elsewhere, we are improving thelives o zoo chimpanzees throughour ChimpanZoo program. Wealso are lobbying to prevent theuse o chimpanzees in entertain-ment, in medical research labs,and as pets. And through ourprogram or young people (JaneGoodall’s Roots & Shoots) weare helping to ensure that thegenerations who ollow us willbe better environmental stewardsthan we have been.My travel schedule, as most o you know, is brutal. In 2008, I was “on the road” some 300 days,lecturing in 18 countries aroundthe world (including China, Japan, aiwan, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the United States, Canadaand 7 European countries). I’moten asked where I nd theenergy to keep going. My answer:I nd strength rom the wonder-ul people I meet along the way especially our Roots &Shoots youth. People who are working, each in his or her own way, to make a dierence.I met one very special person,during a visit to Bozeman,Montana — Greg Mortenson,author o 
Tree Cups o ea
. What an amazing man. He hasdone so much or the education o girls in Pakistan and Aghanistanand he will not give up, no matterhow the situation deteriorates inthose countries. We discussedintroducing Roots & Shoots intothe schools that he builds.Once in a while, I try to escaperom the cities, hotels andairports, and spend some time— even hal a day — in nature with animals. Te migrationo the sandhill cranes on thePlatte River in Nebraska is alwayson my calendar. And, o course,there are my two short visits toGombe each year. Such respitestypically recharge my spirit’sbatteries. My summer Gombevisit, though, was a bit dierent. As I climbed a slope, I dislodgeda huge rock, which then ell ontome. We tumbled down togetheror some way, but luckily I wasthrown aside. Five days later, inUganda, I ound I had a dislocatedshoulder and a ew cracked bones.I also had torn several musclesand was within millimeters o needing surgery. Fortunately, Icould still type, as I was strugglingto nish
Hope or Animals and Teir World 
. But i that rock hadallen on my head…Let me end by emphasizingthat your support o JGI has beena critical actor in our success,especially during these diculttimes. It is you who have enabledus to rescue inant chimpanzeesrom miserable deaths and careor them in our sanctuary. It isyou who have helped us improvethe lives o children and womenliving in poor rural areas. It is you who help us to make this a betterand more sustainable world orour children and theirs. A world where we can live in betterharmony with the environmentand with the other amazinganimals who inhabit Planet Earth.It is good to know how much youcare. I was moved by the hundredso people who contacted me, viaa special online message board,to express their sadness at thedeath o my old riend Gregoire.chimpounga sanctuary will notbe the same without him. Just remember — each one o you makes a dierence, every day. You are making a dierence or us,and rom the bottom o my heart,I thank you. With love,
Dear members anDrienDs o JGi,
