    Or, if you would like to send Jane a paper card, print off the image above then fold it hot dog style (long ways), and then hamburger style (short ways). Include a special message to Jane and then mail it to JGI by the middle of April for Jane to see at the end of the month before she leaves the USA.

    The mailing address is:
    Dr. Jane Goodall
    c/o the Jane Goodall Institute
    1595 Spring Hill Rd., Suite 550
    Vienna, VA 22182

  2. Join us for a LIVE chat with Jane in honor of her birthday! The chat will take place on April 5, and Jane will be discussing the program that she considers her legacy, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots youth program. If you would like to pose a question to Jane, you can do so in advance (and get more information about the live chat) by clicking here.
  3. Dr. Goodall has one wish for her 82nd birthday … for her supporters to ensure that the Roots & Shoots youth-led community action program flourishes across the world, especially in under-served areas. Learn more about the fantastic things that Roots & Shoots groups are doing, and find out how you can start a group in your area, by clicking here. If you’d like to help make Jane’s wish come true, please consider donating to the Roots & Shoots program in honor of her birthday. Donate here.
