On January 27, 2015, the Jane Goodall Institute offices all over the world issued a "Call to Action" asking for your help collecting and recycling mobile devices. WHY? Electronic devices contain metals and minerals that are extracted from threatened chimpanzee habitats. Collecting those minerals devastates chimpanzee homes and causes conflict among people. We know that Roots & Shoots groups have been responding to JGI's "Call to Action" and we want to hear about it! Visit rootsandshoots.org/5000devices to add your devices to our total and help us reach 5,000.

Regream from @jginepal -- JGI Nepal is the Secretariat for the Animal Welfare Network Nepal (AWNN), the central animal welfare organisation for Nepal. Since the first devastating earthquake on April 25th, AWNN teams have been on the ground assessing the damage in both the city and rural affected areas, providing immediate aid to communities and the local animals. Through these assessments the teams have been able to develop lists of urgently needed equipment to most efficiently and successfully save and care for livestock, street dogs and wildlife as well as the human communities, as well as sending supplies to member organisation's teams down at the ground, back up resources and centrally coordinating activities, security and safety and linking agencies together for better impact. JGI Nepal is therefore raising money to enable AWNN to get this equipment as soon as possible. If you would like to help our teams purchase first aid equipment, medications, bedding and food for the rescued, please visit jginepal.org to donate.
