MORE ABOUT THE FILM

Jane Goodall: Dr Jane Goodall is a woman who has marched for a cause her whole adult life and in this woman’s day edition of 50|50, we host Dr. Jane Goodall in an exclusive studio interview. Dr Jane Goodall is world-famous for her research on the chimpanzees of Gombe in Tanzania, and later for her “Roots and Shoots” education projects that also bring eco-friendly enterprise to people in need around the world. Jane is on the road more than 300 days per year and on any continent at any given time speaking to students, meeting with government officials around conservation issues, sitting before television cameras being interviewed or meeting with donors to raise money for JGI. Often, Jane holds public lectures during which she discusses her years at Gombe, the state of chimpanzees today, JGI’s programs, and each individual’s power to effect positive change. Jane is in great demand and known as an inspirational speaker who often moves her audiences to tears. Some people say their lives have been changed by Jane’s message and her example. Jane generally gets back to Gombe at least twice per year, to “recharge her batteries” and see what her now-famous chimpanzees are up to. Jane has a special connection to young people. They respond not only to her passion for and curiosity about animals, but to her courage and hope for a better world. Reaching out to these young people is a high priority for Jane, and conservation education, as well as general education is a critical part of JGI’s work today. Jane hears firsthand the voices of young people — from Tanzania to China, North America to the United Kingdom — speaking of the need for change, their hopes, and their determination to make a better world. She carries their message to audiences all over the world. This is Jane’s life today — sometimes exhausting, but always driven by purpose. Jane is determined to use just about every minute she has working to save chimpanzees and to empower people — young and old — to do what they can for a better world.
