“And so if we really care about the future of our planet we must stop leaving it to ‘them’ out there to solve all the problems. It is up to us to save the world for tomorrow: it is up to you and me.” - Dr. #janegoodall We are facing the sixth great extinction in the history of this planet. Beyond the numbers, like the reduction of range and population size of chimpanzees across Africa from millions to under 300,000 in less than 100 years, there is great individual suffering. When one species suffers, we all suffer. It is up to you and me today to do something about it. And we can, there is hope.

Will you help?
You may have seen the Jane Goodall Institute video of Dr. Jane Goodall in an embrace with one very special chimpanzee named Wounda across social media. That was not the beginning of Wounda's story, nor the end. Watch here to find out more about this incredible chimp and the work to rescue and support chimpanzees like her LINK IN BIO: www.janegoodall.org/woundashope

When we rescue a chimpanzee and he or she is brought to the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, it is clear that they’ve been through horrors we can only imagine. Each one has been taken from their forest home, their cherished familial bonds broken, many as only infants. But Tchimpounga is a place for second chances... Wounda is one such chimpanzee, and though her story has a tragic beginning, it has turned out to be one amazing adventure! This very special chimp found her way into the arms of Dr. Jane Goodall after a very long and difficult road. Though this hug was singular, our work can and must be enduring in order to protect and care for chimpanzees like Wounda. She is one of nearly 150 chimpanzees the Jane Goodall Institute in the Republic of Congo has rescued, rehabilitated and given a second chance for the past 25 years of operation. Her story is not over thanks to the support of people around the world.
We hope that you enjoy watching the next chapter of Wounda’s story in this video with narration by @piercebrosnanofficial , created with help from @discoverycomm .

Introducing the Dr. Jane Goodall rose!
The creation of this hybrid tea rose fulfills a dream of Dr. Goodall, presenting gardeners in the United States with the opportunity to grow a gorgeous bloom in her name. For Dr. Goodall and the Jane Goodall Institute, the rose represents her vision for a more harmonious world. Its innate connection to nature is only one aspect of the rose’s symbolic relevance, as its sunrise pink-yellow hue represents the dawn of a better future for all living things.
Get your very own @jacksonandperkins Dr. Jane Goodall rose available for pre-order to grow a sunrise of hope in your garden or community: http://bit.ly/2yJBRoA Three dollars from the sale of each Dr. Jane Goodall Rose will go to benefit the essential work of the Jane Goodall Institute.| #janegoodall#drjanegoodall#drgoodall#hopeinaction#rose#rosarian#garden#grow#flowers#flowerstagram#roses#roses#sunrise#conservation#gardening#gardening#gardeninglife
For millions, there exists an image of a young, blonde woman going into the forests of Africa to live among wild chimpanzees...but that is only part of the story. In 1960, 26 year old Jane Goodall set out - like no one had before - to uncover the secrets of chimpanzees, but her lifelong impact reaches far beyond what she discovered. Experience Jane's early years in Gombe that changed the world (with incredible never before seen footage) to learn the whole story.

Photos and videos of young chimpanzees receive so much love and adoration. Not many things are as cute as a group of healthy chimpanzees playing, hugging, and exploring their world. But these photos and videos we share only show one side of the reality chimpanzees face. For #greatapesgivingday, you have the chance to help us give chimpanzees torn from their mothers and homes a second chance at our Tchimpounga Sanctuary. Help us reach our goal of $30,000 and get your friends and family involved! Link in bio.
At the Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga sanctuary, nearly 150 orphaned chimpanzees rely on the goodness of individuals like you to keep them healthy and thriving with the support of the JGI staff. You have the ability to choose what kind of difference you want to make.

How do you process the moments that shape our world while they’re happening? The truth is, you don’t ever really. Jane Goodall pursued her dream honestly and fearlessly, without thought about whether she would be praised or approved of, and those instincts and her ability to share her reflections and discoveries changed the world. Last night, we all got to experience the purest form of Jane living as herself during the happiest time of her life as a young researcher in Gombe, and together we lived in that moment and in our moment together at the Hollywood Bowl. We’re so enchanted by the idea of a new generation falling in love with the story of a young woman who showed us how to be more human and more true to ourselves. We hope that each of you takes this story as a source of inspiration to never stop being curious and pursuing what moves you, while working to build a better tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who joined us and we can’t wait to share this film with the rest of the world!
