About Jane Goodall Institute:

Established by renowned primatologist and anthropologist  Jane Goodall   in 1977,  the Jane Goodall Institute is a global non-profit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things.  The institute encourages communities to protect apes and all animals through education, research, and community-centered conservation.  

The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada was established in Montreal in 1994 and moved to Toronto in 2007.  The Canadian chapter has two main focuses:   African projects and Roots & Shoots.  In F2015, the institute spent $834k on African projects and $288k on Roots & Shoots.  The African projects focus on  protecting the habitat of chimpanzees and helping local communities to live more sustainably.  Through a Uganda project, the annual deforestation rate within the wildlife corridor was reduced from 5.1% in 2010 to 2.5% in 2013.  Roots & Shoots  is  a youth engagement program that empowers 150,000 youth in 140 countries to make a positive difference  for people, animals and the environment.  In F2015, Roots & Shoots  reached 10,460 youth through 16 workshops across Canada.
