Special: TFK Talks to Dr. Jane Goodall!
In this special Earth Day webinar, students heard from Dr. Jane Goodall, renowned primatologist and founder of both the Jane Goodall Institute, a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitat, and Roots & Shoots, an international environmental and humanitarian youth program. She was also selected by the United Nations Secretary-General to serve as a Messenger of Peace. During the webinar, Dr. Goodall reported on efforts to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment we all share. TFK editors provided participants with background information about the African country of Tanzania and Jane Goodall’s work as a primatologist and conservationist. The TFK supplement, Around the World: Tanzania, is available on TFK’s website and is packed with information about the country’s history and culture. TFK also provided printable worksheets and graphic organizers to support learning about Dr. Goodall’s research and mission.
