Jane Goodall Institute

Over 45 years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE & UN Messenger of Peace founded the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) to carry on her vision and life’s work to protect chimpanzees and the planet that we share.

Now, with over six+ decades in the field, and with a founder who has always insisted on narrative observations (allowing researchers to capture a complete picture of the lives of the primates they’re studying), JGI continues innovating by turning to advanced technology to further Dr. Goodall’s research and continue to reveal new learnings of our closest living relatives in the animal kingdom.


Leveraging the latest in artificial intelligence, JGI is embarking on a journey to preserve the legacy of Jane’s work, uncover new insights from her extensive research materials, and create new opportunities to advocate for our shared habitat.
