College is rough. Most of my time May of 2017 was spent inside the library at all hours of the day studying for finals. Earlier in the semester I had decided that I was getting bored of my Public Relations major and that I would add a Business Administration major to my degree, just to make the last year and a half of college more interesting.  2017 ended up being much more interesting than I ever imagined. It was the year I decided to add a second major, the year I met Jane Goodall in the parking lot, and the…

Every day people ask me, “How can I  help Jane Goodall?  In general, people are looking to jump on the first plane to Africa in order to do whatever it takes to protect chimps and the habitats that they live in. Truthfully however, the best way to get involved with Jane’s work is by making an impact in the places closest to you, like your own community. Believe it or not, you don’t necessarily have to work for the Jane Goodall Institute to join Jane’s team… All over the world, there is a network of hardworking, every day people just…

We often hear about the “Jane Effect”, which everyone experiences differently. For me, the “Jane Effect” is the emotions that one experiences after listening to Dr. Jane Goodall speak. One can walk into an auditorium not knowing what to expect, and then leave the auditorium feeling hopeful and empowered; feeling like they CAN make a difference and understanding that they DO have a part to play in making this world a better place. The “Jane Effect” changed my life and proves that we each have the power to do something to make a huge impact every single day. My name…

Every single day, Dr. Goodall and the staff of the Jane Goodall Institute hear stories about how Dr. Goodall’s life, work and message have caused them to take action or feel moved in some way. The stories speak of what can be accomplished today for a more harmonious planet where humans, other animals and the environment live in harmony. What if we could amplify these stories and make that future a reality? In honor of the Jane Goodall Institute’s 40th anniversary, Jane Goodall’s Hope in Action campaign calls upon people everywhere who have been inspired in some way by Dr.…

The rustling of leaves and buzzing of insects are interrupted by a loud and joyous pant-hoot, the sound of a nearby chimpanzee. While this noise may be an everyday occurrence in the forest of Gombe, it’s out of place echoing off the famous Hollywood Hills. On October 9, fans of Dr. Jane Goodall flooded the Hollywood Bowl to see a special screening of National Geographic’s new documentary JANE, and catch a glimpse of her early life and work in the remote areas of Tanzania. Transported by the beautiful never before seen footage arranged by acclaimed director Brett Morgen projected on the…

The power of a single story is immeasurable. When a young 26 year old woman from England traveled to Tanzania to study wild animals and share their stories, she transformed our understanding of our relationship to non-human animals, and what was possible for a woman in science, or in general. The reverberations of her story have echoed endlessly and caused the emergence of a generation of compassionate people willing to take action for the planet we all share. Now, we’re sharing those stories. In honor of the Jane Goodall Institute’s 40th anniversary, the Hope in Action campaign calls upon people…

The enthusiasm and creativity of young people holds a special place in Dr. Jane’s heart.  As one of the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots National Youth Leaders, I would love to share the story of a twelve-year old singer who stole all of our hearts.   Meet Ava Willis.  She wrote a song about Dr. Jane for a school assignment and made a beautiful video of her singing it in the first person while strumming along on her ukulele.  Ava is sharing Dr. Jane’s story using her own passion, music. I had the opportunity to chat with the awesome Ava about…
