a conversation with Jane Goodall
•Jane Goodall is a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist and UN Messenger of Peace. Considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and the Roots & Shoots program and she has worked extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. As part of the R&S program, a grant was awarded to a group of grade 11 and 12 at the Aldergrove Community Secondary School in BC to design and construct an outdoor learning space. Twenty-five students, of whom seven were Indigenous, led the project. The learning space will be used by hundreds of students as well as people in the community.
