The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) and The University of Edinburgh are proud to bring you one of the most revered and much loved conservationists of our time -Dr. Jane Goodall Ph.D., DBE.

Jane will speak from the heart about the world of the Gombe chimpanzees, drawing on a lifetime of challenges and unique experiences she has encountered in the field. She will also outline the work of the Jane Goodall Institute, dedicated to continuing her pioneering research and to spearheading projects to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. The Institute is also widely recognised for establishing innovative community-centred conservation and development programmes in Africa, andJane Goodall's Roots and Shoots, a global environmental and humanitarian youth programme.

Jane will share her thoughts on the future of chimps in the wild, as well as touching upon illegal trade in ivory and rhino horn, an issue very close to her heart.  Finally, she will offer her vision for the future of conservation, guidance in navigating the current threats facing the planet, and her reasons for hope in these troubled times.

Jane brings the perfect blend of wisdom, humour, insight and challenge to the podium, and has the amazing ability to spark creative and expansive thought around complex conservation issues.
