The Jane Goodall Institute
The Jane Goodall Institute builds on Jane Goodall's scientific work and her humanitarian vision. Our mission is to:
- Contribute to the preservation of Great Apes and their habitats by combining conservation with education and promotion of sustainable livelihoods in local communities;
- Improve global understanding and treatment of Great Apes through research, public education and advocacy; and
- Create a worldwide network of young people who have learned to care deeply for their human community, for all animals and for the environment, and who will take responsible action to care for them.
Hamilton Zoo supports the ‘Snare Intervention’ programme and ‘Ugandan paper beads’ programme. The sale of gift cards and the paper bead jewellery helps provide an alternative income for families and reduce the poaching of Chimpanzees.
