Founded in 1977, the Jane Goodall Institute continues Dr. Goodall’s pioneering research on chimpanzee behaviour — research that transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. What began as an effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats has since evolved into a worldwide movement that now inspires a generation of young global citizens and supports community-centered conservation in Africa.
JGI Canada acknowledges that the land upon which our office operates has been the site of human activity for 15,000 years and is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca and most recently, the Mississaugas of the New Credit. It is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are honoured to have the opportunity to work in this territory.
