2019 Annual Report

Life on Earth is precious and precarious. At JGI, we are building upon Janes living legacy of responsibility to the natural world and one another. In 2019, we amplified those connections in extraordinary ways. This is our goal — a harmonious world of connection — and, with your help, were making it real.  

As our founder Dr. Jane Goodall has shared, we have a small window of time to turn things around. But we at the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) believe in what is possible when this very human ability to shape our world can serve as our salvation. JGI is an organization founded upon Janes remarkable observations that we are not different in kind from other species, but rather by mere degree. Knowing this, JGI operates with a dedication to not only reaffirm our connections to the natural world but also to reshape them for the benefit of all. This is Janes vision. This is our mission. 

Below you will find exciting updates and stories on JGI USA’s work in 2019. A center focus to understand and contextualize this work is the dashboard below provided by our Decision Support System (DSS). Explore the maps to see how JGI scientists demonstrate the status and trends in chimpanzee habitat and population viability indicators in JGI chimpscapes.

Life on Earth is precious and precarious. Since the metaphoric day we split from the evolutionary branch we share with the ancient ancestors of modern chimpanzees, humans have become the shapers of our planet’s destiny. Humans have created an unparalleled capacity to grow and survive, and yet the cost of our determination has been the illusory disconnect from that shared branch. Our detachment from the rest of this precious Earth has driven us to a place of isolation as well as great harm, and the burden of this is shouldered by our fellow species. As our founder Dr. Jane Goodall has shared, we have a small window of time to turn things around. But we at the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) believe in what is possible when this very human ability to shape our world can serve as our salvation.


JGI is an organization founded upon Dr. Goodall’s remarkable observations that we are not different in kind from other species, but rather by mere degree. Knowing this, JGI operates with a dedication to not only reaffirm our connections to the natural world but also to reshape them for the benefit of all. This is Dr. Goodall’s vision. This is our mission.

In 2018, we launched an organizational strategy that holds us accountable for definable, scalable progress with the integration of two main goals across eight objectives. From understanding and protecting endangered chimpanzees through community-led approaches to advancing science and empowering the next generation, from inspiring hope around the world to propelling sustainable, humane policies, and investing in inclusive advocacy, we are building upon Dr. Goodall’s living legacy of responsibility to the natural world and one another. In 2019, we amplified those connections in extraordinary ways. This our hope in action — a harmonious world of connection — and, with your help, we’re making it real.

Technology and visualizations like this further confirm knowledge of trends towards global deforestation and biodiversity loss. It is with tools like this that JGI can help decision-makers prioritize action, supporting local communities and governments to protect areas from destruction and/or allow for natural regeneration. Though our aim is always to improve indicators to “Very Good,” in most cases maintaining or slightly improving indicators is a huge success. This technology emphasizes the need to further invest in GIS decision-making tools and the urgent need for habitat and chimpanzee conservation through community-led approaches.

For example, the Albertine Rift montane forests chimpscape on the map experienced a surge in habitat loss after 2013. Conservation strategies need to adapt to deal with the increase in threats and avoid degradation of habitat health from “Fair” to “Poor” in the near future.

How to use the Dashboard: of the DSS showing the status and trends in chimpanzee habitat and population viability indicators in chimpscapes. The system integrates more than 30,000 Landsat satellite images and generates data used to document these indicators over time. The DSS utilizes Esri’s ArcGIS platform and cloud operations, to visualize this data for decision-makers using the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation, ranking populations and habitats with clear conditions of “Very Good,” “Good,” “Fair,” and “Poor.”

This map interactive allows you to explore the habitat and population viability indicators across JGI chimpscapes. You can zoom into regions or chimpscapes to assess how viability has changed. For example, across Tanzania, among the core chimpanzee ranges and corridors defined by the Tanzania Chimpanzee Conservation Action Plan, degradation of chimpanzee habitat went from “Fair” to “Poor” in Ugalla corridor between 2014-2019.

A great approach for great apes. From a population of more than one million just a century ago to less than 340,000 today, wild chimpanzees are disappearing. For more than 30 years, the Jane Goodall Institute has used a combination of approaches to protect chimpanzees by putting sustainable human development at the center of conservation — known as ‘Tacare’. By understanding habitats and threats, coupled with local knowledge, JGI works with stakeholders on all levels. Our work is proactive, identifying threats and their drivers, from deforestation to zoonotic disease to illegal wildlife trade. It’s also reflective, learning from successes and leveraging only the best of our methods.

Through a Window: Chimpanzees and Ourselves. Dr. Goodall’s observation that chimpanzees make and use tools is considered one of the 20th century’s greatest contributions. Her other discoveries, spanning chimpanzee compassion, emotions, intelligence, meat consumption and hunting, primitive warfare, and mother-infant bonds, likewise revolutionized the way we think about non-human animals and ourselves. This important research continues as the longest running wild chimpanzee study in the world at Gombe Stream Research Center, led by Deus C. MjunguPh.D.

To date, more than 300 publicationsfocusing on chimpanzee health, behavior, and/or other insights, have emerged from Gombe, with thousands of researchers referencing the material year after year. This unparalleled research not only represents the value of longitudinal studies of animal behavior, including baboons, guenon monkeys, and other native species, but also the wonderful biodiversity of a single site

The Good of All Through the Good of One. At JGI, we believe every individual has an important role to play. As we recognize the need to protect our closest living relatives from extinction, we build on the work of our founder to ensure the wellbeing of every individual chimpanzee. As Dr. Goodall and JGI’s research has shown, chimpanzees are intelligent, emotional, and social, with communities representing cultural value to the species. Unfortunately, they tragically face the physical and psychological harm of the bushmeat and illegal pet trade. To combat this nuanced and complex threat while improving the lives of survivors of the trade, JGI’s work in Republic of the Congo puts the individual first.

Walking the Talk Through Roots & Shoots. Roots & Shoots is a movement to own one’s purpose, build connections, and hone personal passions. Instead of being overwhelmed by the existential magnitude of global catastrophe, these young changemakers focus on their role in their community. Through Roots & Shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people have developed a greater sense of agency, compassion, and hope. From interactive events to international summits, in 2019, the Jane Goodall Institute increased the program’s accessibility and scale by leaps and bounds. 


Where Roots & Shoots Began – Where It’s Going: Africa Programs. Roots & Shoots started in Tanzania in 1991 when a group of high school students expressed their dismay at the challenges their communities faced. Jane empowered these young people to take action, and nearly 30 years later Roots & Shoots has grown to more than 60 countries with more than 3,100 groups in African countries.

A Vision For a Better World Turned Real Through Better Strategies. Dr. Jane Goodall has always been someone to reach across perspectives, open dialogues with those with whom she has differing opinions, and guide conversations that facilitate consensus and true change for the benefit of all. The Jane Goodall Institute’s emphasis on the practical application of our values and ethics, with Jane as our model and spokesperson, helps us to create campaigns, partnerships, and behaviors that embody a respect for the interconnection of life on Earth. 

Policy and Advocacy for an Interconnected World. JGI engages with policymakers, administrators, governing bodies, and corporations to promote best practices and drive change. We are protecting great apes and other species while promoting ecosystem conservation by addressing key issues, such as climate change, non-human animal welfare,  habitat destruction, and wildlife trafficking.

Jane for All. As a groundbreaking scientist, Dr. Jane Goodall transformed our understanding of the world; as a compassionate advocate and leader, she builds holistic solutions for complex conservation, environmental, and welfare challenges. Nearly 60 years after Jane’s initial discoveries and the landmark cultural impact of her research, 2019 likewise marked an era of awareness and change through connection, discovery, and storytelling. From expansive efforts to archive and catalogue Jane’s personal artifacts, writings, and media to technological collaboration that makes Jane’s life and teachings accessible far and wide, the Jane Goodall Institute is making sure everyone is a part of “Generation Jane.”

“The efforts of the Jane Goodall Institute and all who are fighting to save species and the environment are indeed the reason for hope. I am so grateful to our donors for your support of JGI USA so that we can be a beacon of hope for chimpanzees and the ecosystems they and so many other species depend on. Your support also allows us to continue empowering young people around the globe to shape a better world for all. Thank you.”

– Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE

Scaling our Impact Across the Chimpanzee Range

Over the last three years, significant support from the Fletcher Foundation has enabled JGI to pursue our ambitious strategy to advance our conservation footprint across the chimpanzee range in Africa. From Gombe to Tchimpounga to Senegal, their support has helped increase our impact, strengthen our operations, grow our network, and empower our partners and communities on the ground. At a pivotal time for both JGI, as well as chimpanzees as a species, we could not be more grateful for this support and look forward to continuing to advance together in the future.

Investing in Individuals, Investing in the Future

A longtime friend of JGI, the whole Stadler family has been involved in more and more powerful ways every year that passes. Their support in 2019 helped JGI implement critical programming across our Africa programs, including a particular emphasis on Roots & Shoots with an incredibly powerful scholarship program for Zanzibar youth as well as the continued growth of JGI’s work at the Pugu Hills Nature Center in Dar Es Salaam. With animal welfare in their hearts as well, the Stadler’s support has benefitted the chimpanzees of Tchimpounga from improved infrastructure to their day-to-day care. Support like theirs means JGI can continue deepening our impact in more ways every day. We are so glad they are a part of the JGI family.

Support with a personal touch

For more than a decade, Mary and Tim Mapes have supported JGI with a personal touch. They have been involved with the organization in a variety of roles, including Mary’s tenure as a JGI board member. In September of 2019, the Mapes hosted Dr. Goodall and the JGI team during a weekend of events that included a special donor experience in the form of a “fireside chat” and an auction hosted at their home, a warm and welcoming abode in Atlanta that’s certified Earthcraft Gold.

JGI has enjoyed many years of partnership with Delta Air Lines, where Tim Mapes serves as S.V.P. and Chief Marketing & Communications Officer. As the company has pushed itself toward corporate social responsibility, Delta has been quite serious about creating a better world and its sponsorship of JGI is a testament to their commitment. During Dr. Goodall’s visit to Atlanta, Delta kindly hosted two events for JGI, including a special employee engagement event for Dr. Goodall and Delta employees, as well as JGI’s Roots & Shoots Celebration of Compassion, Action, & Peace, a marquee event that JGI hosts each year to recognize the impact of the Roots & Shoots network.

The life of the party

A longtime friend of Dr. Goodall, Joe Tatelbaum has been a dedicated supporter, impactful funder, and former board member for JGI’s Roots & Shoots program in China as well as most recently a key sponsor for JGI’s National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) in USA. In 2019, Joe’s support enabled JGI to continue our professional development and leadership training efforts with the high school and college members of the NYLC. In September of 2019, he attended JGI’s Roots & Shoots Celebration of Compassion, Action, & Peace in Atlanta as well as the NYLC’s annual summit which he was very happy to participate in. At events like these, Joe is always the life of the party with his incredible chimpanzee- themed fashions.

Becci Crowe

As a JGI USA board member and remarkable artist, Becci Crowe
has contributed several Dr. Goodall and JGI themed pieces using
Pen & Ink Pointillism and Watercolor. These prints are available on
the JGI eStore, including Becci’s latest portrait of Dr. Goodall titled ‘Jane’s Prayer’.

Tom Mangelsen

Longtime friend of Dr. Goodall and JGI, world-renowned American nature and wildlife photographer Tom Mangelsen has contributed
several incredible photographs to JGI. In 2019, Tom generously
donated proceeds from limited edition print sales to support our work.

Bruce Lawes

As an impressive painter specializing in stunning realism, Bruce Lawes contributed multiple pieces to JGI, including ‘Spirit of the Forest’ featuring chimpanzee mother Fifi and daughter Flirt. This is a transcendent and powerful piece that brings nature into our everyday lives. Bruce’s prints are available on the JGI eStore.

Benjamin Walls

Prestigious and award-winning photographer Benjamin Walls has been a longtime fan of Dr. Goodall. In 2019, the Benjamin Walls Gallery generously helped raise $90,000 dollars through an auction of Benjamin’s art and tickets sales to an intimate fireside chat with Dr. Goodall.
