About Dr. Jane + Roots & Shoots

About Dr. Jane 2

Dr. Jane Goodall often says that she was born loving animals—and it was this love, sense of curiosity and wonder, along with support from her mother and early mentors, that inspired her to travel to Tanzania and study chimpanzees in the wild. Once she saw the challenges facing chimpanzees (our closest living relatives) and their forest homes, she knew she had to do something.

From scientist to activist, Dr. Jane now spends every single day making better choices for the planet and inspiring millions of others around the world to do the same – including a special program she created just for young people, Roots & Shoots! Roots & Shoots empowers young people from all around the world to make a difference in their communities by turning hope into action with service projects that help people, other animals, and the planet.
