Celebrate Earth Day and Jane’s 87th Birthday on April 3rd and All Month Long

On April 3rd, 2021 and all throughout April we celebrate Earth Day and the 87th birthday of Dr. Jane Goodall, a woman who for over 60 years has inspired and motivated millions of people around the globe to live in greater harmony with nature and to take action on behalf of the planet we share. Compelled by Dr. Goodall’s mission to live sustainably and with compassion, we look with new hope for a brighter, greener future. As Jane has shared, one of the most resilient and impressive forces on Earth is contained within the seeds of plant life, which can break through walls and always find a way.

In the fight against biodiversity loss and the Climate Crisis, restoration, regeneration, and protection of global forests are some of our greatest hopes. Join the #JanesGreenHope campaign to plant the seed of Jane’s dream for a greener world and help it bloom for generations to come.

Pledge to make a difference.

As part of the #JanesGreenHope join Jane and thousands of people from around the world in taking action to create a greener future for all. Jane and JGI’s efforts to protect and restore forests are part of the Trillion Trees initiative and emphasize the potential of forests to improve wellbeing and livelihoods for local and indigenous communities, combat climate change, and protect global biodiversity. Every individual can make a difference.
