The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global wildlife and environment conservation organization headquartered in Washington, DC.[1] It was founded in 1977 by English primatologist Jane Goodall.[2]

The institute has offices in more than twenty-five countries around the world.[3]

Activities[edit]

Protecting Great Apes[edit]

JGI works to protect chimpanzees and other primates by supporting sanctuaries, law enforcement efforts to reduce illegal trafficking, and public education to protect endangered species in the wild.[4] The Chimp Eden Sanctuary in South Africa is one of the institute's sanctuaries and is located in a forested reserve between Nelspruit and Barberton.[5][6]

Improving Gender and Health Outcomes[edit]

JGI achieves this through community-centered health projects, improvements to water supplies, and programs designed to keep girls in school.[7]

Promoting Sustainable Livelihoods[edit]

JGI does this through improved agricultural practices, community-managed microcredit programs, and sustainable production techniques that increase incomes while protecting forests[8] and watersheds.[9]

Cookbook[edit]

In 2021, the institute published a cookbook titled The Jane Goodall Institute #EatMeatless."[10] The book's forward was written by Jane Goodall, a longtime vegetarian and now vegan.[11] Vegan expert Avery Yale Kamila included the cookbook on her list of 2021's best cookbooks.[12] Food writer Mark Bittman interviewed Jane Goodall about the book on his podcast.[13] Veganuary listed the book no. 1 on its list of Best Vegan Cookbooks.[14]
