Jane Goodall Institute and FMCN begin collaboration
“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
November 12 and 13, 2013 were historic days for the Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature. We were honored to receive a visit from Dr. Jane Goodall and Susan B. Name in Mexico City.
Jane Goodall, world-renowned English primatologist, carried out the first long-term, intensive research on wild chimpanzees in Gombe National Park, in Tanzania. The results of her research revolutionized biology, ethology, and the image human beings had of themselves. In 1977, Jane Goodall founded the Jane Goodall Institute, which now has presence in over 28 countries; her program for children and youth, Roots & Shoots, operates in 130 countries.
Dr. Goodall shared her experiences with the FMCN Executive Committee, and held work sessions with members of the staff. Several possible collaborations between FMCN and the Jane Goodall Institute to advance conservation in Mexico were discussed.
Jane Goodall is an activist for environmental education and conservation, defending life in all its forms and promoting sustainable practices the world over.
The collaboration between these two institutions will help ensure a brighter future for new generations.
