The objectives of the Institute are to:

  • Increase primate habitat conservation
  • Increase awareness of, support for and training in issues related to our relationship with each other, the environment and other animals (leading to behavior change)
  • Expand non-invasive research programs on chimpanzees and other primates
  • Promote activities that ensure the well-being of chimpanzees, other primates and animal welfare activities in general

The Jane Goodall Institute has more than 100 “Roots & Shoots” groups throughout Oregon, which help young people learn about environmental issues in their local communities, and take on projects to make the world better. Some of the Roots & Shoots projects Oregon kids have initiated include:

  • students from Boring helped restore Pringle Creek in Salem;
  • students from Bend planted native Ponderosas in Shevlin Park;
  • students from Forest Grove made (using discarded materials) toys for animals living in local shelters and vet clinics.
