Dr Jane Goodall DBE
Reasons for Hope
Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace
In conversation with Professor Ben Garrod
Renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall has dedicated her life to studying chimpanzees. In 1960, aged 26, Jane arrived in Gombe in western Tanzania to begin her research into the wild chimpanzees, equipped with nothing more than a notebook and pair of binoculars. Living in Gombe, Jane made hugely important observations and discoveries – that chimpanzees were actually meat-eaters and that they created and used tools, which up until that time, only humans were thought to do.
In this special event, Jane will be in conversation with Festival patron Prof Ben Garrod – discussing her work and the core programmes of the Jane Goodall Institute, the future of conservation and how our actions make a difference every single day. Through her global humanitarian and conservation programme Roots & Shoots, young people of all ages are empowered to undertake hands-on programmes for their community, animals and the environment we all share. Plus booksigning.
