The amazing Ngamba research island, Uganda. We spent a day in the rain forest with the juveniles. A privilege to spend time with the people who keep this place running. Made possible by the inspirational Jane Goodall. Donate donate!
A newborn chimp baby lies cradled on her mother’s chest. To be this close to wild chimpanzees requires trust. It took us several weeks of following one group of chimps on foot in a remote part of Senegal before they felt comfortable enough with us to allow this proximity. The day I made this photo was a breakthrough: The little chimp and her mom both dozed off in front of us—less than 60 feet away. Chimps and bonobos are our nearest relatives on the great tree of life, but we’re not treating them like family—they are all endangered. Habitat loss and the bushmeat trade are impacting their lives wherever they occur in west and central Africa. We urge you to support the organizations that are trying to make a difference, including the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, the Jane Goodall Institute, and Neighbor Ape, founded by primatologist Jill Pruetz, to whom we say thank you for all her work with the chimps in Senegal.
This is my 3rd painting of the #1000rescuestories project. Chimpanzees...65-101. The story of Jane Goodall’s rescue of Wounda is so moving. Wounda was close to death when she was rescued by the the Jane Goodall Institute Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Centre. They cared for Wounda for years until she was healthy enough to be released back into the wild. Upon release, Wounda turned to Jane Goodall and hugged her close. The work Jane Goodall has done around the world is amazing. She is in her eighties and still travelling the world to educate people about the planet and what we can do to protect life on Earth. She reminds us that we have the ability to look after this Earth #1000rescuestories#janegoodall#janegoodallinstitute#compassion#stencilart#animalart#artofinstagram#monkeyart#painting#animalrescue
One of the most moving experiences of my life.
An Evening with Dr Jane Goodall.
What can be said about one of the worlds most influential women.
She made us cry - made us feel important & she made us understand that one small lifestyle change can and will make a difference.
In a room of more than 3000 people we shared a magical moment - a connection that electrified the room and brought us all together.
IT'S NOT TO LATE !! STOP ... think, process and then act.
This is the message that we left with.
I would encourage you to visit
Get your kids involved get your friends kids involved and help make a difference.
Tonight Mum went to listen to @janegoodallinst with @the_dog_brigade@happygoluckypaws and @kobe_therescue. She is an amazing human told everyone about her life story and her mission to replenish the planet with what we have already destroyed, to think about where our food comes from and the future of both and so much more. Very inspiring. On every special human. “What makes us human, I think, is an ability to ask questions, a consequence of our sophisticated spoken language"

What a magical night spent with a living treasure and icon. Dr Jane Goodall. She greeted us with a Chimp call, she shared stories about her fascination with chickens as a child and how that started her love for wildlife, and ultimately how she was convinced Tarzan married the wrong Jane!
She's a little bonkers which I love, but she reminds us that If we want something bad enough, we should work hard, take advantage of opportunities and do our best. Through this eye opening discussion about the future of our younger generation and the future health of our planet, there was a strong message of hope, change and forgiveness.
Truly inspiring! #aneveningwithdrjanegoodall#drjanegoodall#janegoodall#janegoodallinstitute#thincinc#chimpanzee#inspirational#normanharper
I would have to say I believe I've just had an evening with a truly great woman of the modern times.
The legacy she is creating with grass roots programs and the hope and warmth of heart she instills in the human race is just uplifting.
A humble person who conducts herself with such intellectual grace , I've been honoured to hear her wisdoms. #thinkgoodall#janegoodall#janegoodallinstitute#jgi#natgeo
