We are excited to announce our new blog featuring stories of hope from Jane and the team! Jane Goodall’s Good for All News shares the stories of the many positive advances being made in the world for protecting wildlife — especially chimpanzees — and how every individual can do their part to make a difference for a better world. The stories and information shared on Good for All News are guided by Dr. Jane Goodall’s Reasons for Hope. With so much global media focused on doom and gloom, our stories, emphasize why we should continue to embrace hope, and inspires us all to take action. Good for All News brings stories and information written by Dr. Goodall herself, as well as the staff of the Jane Goodall Institute and members of the wider wildlife conservation community.
Jane Goodall is a passionate road warrior, traveling nearly 300 days each year on a worldwide speaking tour to raise awareness, inspire change, and encourage each of us to do our part in making the world a better place. Jane's love for animals started at a young age and in July of 1960, at the age of 26, she followed her dreams and traveled from England to what is now Tanzania, to bravely enter the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars, but with her unyielding patience and optimism, she won the trust of the Gombe chimpanzees, and opened a window into their lives for all to see. Jane's studies has taught humanity one of the most important lessons - that we humans are not the only beings on this planet with personalities, minds capable of thinking and above all, emotions. Her findings shook the scientific community and made us re-evaluate what it means to be human.
