RESCHEDULING: Dr. Jane Goodall & Living on Earth: Local Voices, Local Choices
**Please note that we are working to reschedule "Dr. Jane Goodall & Living on Earth: Local Voices, Local Choices" due to unforeseen circumstances. We will reach out to all registrants soon with the new date and time and look forward to having a conversation about empowering communities in their conservation efforts.**

You know her from her groundbreaking research on chimpanzees, but Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE and her team have spent over twenty years developing a holistic approach to conservation centered not around the chimps, but around the people.

Their new book “Local Voices, Local Choices: The Tacare Approach to Community-Led Conservation” aims to empower communities to understand the ways they impact their environment, and find sustainable solutions that preserve it for the benefit of all species.

The Living on Earth Book Club, Jane Goodall Institute and UMass Boston School for the Environment proudly present this free, live conversation between Dr. Jane Goodall and Host Steve Curwood on the Tacare Approach.

Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
Ethologist, Conservationist and Primatologist @Jane Goodall Institute
On the path to becoming the world’s leading primatologist, Dr. Jane Goodall redefined traditional conservation. In 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute to support the research in Gombe and scale up the protection of chimpanzees in their habitats. In the late 1980s, it became clear that Gombe was only part of the solution to a much bigger, rapidly growing problem of deforestation and declining chimpanzee populations across Africa. Knowing that local communities are key to protecting chimpanzees, she redefined traditional conservation with an approach that recognizes the central role people play in the well-being of animals and habitat. In 1991, when a group of young people confided their own deep concerns, she invited them to co-found Roots & Shoots, a program at work with young people in 100 countries to foster the informed generation of conservation leaders our world so urgently needs.
