Over 60 years ago, a young woman stepped out of a boat onto a pebbly beach at Gombe – and into history. Dr. Jane Goodall has dedicated her life to environmental advocacy. Her legacy is a global movement that continues to inspire hundreds of thousands of people to advocate and take action for a better future. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can ensure your own legacy is one of generosity and hope. You can take pride in knowing you’ve helped make the world a better place for your loved ones and generations yet to come.

By making a gift in your Will to JGI Canada, your legacy will be:

  • The future of rescued chimpanzees living in the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga sanctuary
  • The continued fight to put an end to the illegal wildlife trade
  • Community-centred conservation that improves the lives of local people in Africa and right here in
  • Canada, all while protecting biodiversity and saving wildlife
  • Empowering young Canadians – the next generation of conservation leaders – through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program
  • Generosity and hope for your loved ones and generations to come

Inspired by Jane’s message of hope through action, it is more crucial than ever to remember that what you leave behind determines what lies ahead.
