Born to be wild. Protect a chimp.

How awareness can
make an impact

Stunning new video narrated by Dr. Jane Goodall. With special thanks to award-winning director Steve Gordon of Untitled Films.


“I do believe in the possibility of a world where we can live in harmony with nature. But only if every one of us does our part to make that world a reality. So that when you look back over your journey, your life, you can truly say: I did make a difference.”

-Dr. Jane Goodall

We are pleased to announce that the Government of Canada through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) has awarded a $4.1 million grant to JGI Canada for our project in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Delivering Healthy Futures. DFATD's generous donation allows us to scale up our existing projects in the DRC by contributing to the reduction of maternal and child mortality in 20 villages located in and near some of the most globally important habitat for wild chimpanzees and the great apes. JGI Canada is committed to conservation initiatives that recognize the relationship between healthy, sustainable, communities and ecosystem integrity. When people thrive, chimpanzees thrive.
