This conversation was recorded by Kate Snowdon (https://kateonconservation.com/ and @KateConsrvation) and kindly shared with the Wild Voices Project podcast. It’s a conversation with the renowned international conservationist Dr Jane Goodall. Jane is best known for her work studying chimps in Gombi which she did predominantly with National Geographic in the 1960s. She was the first person to observe chimps in the wild using tools which redefined the way we saw chimps, and humans in relation to them.
Kate was lucky enough to talk to Jane about her time in Gombi, as well as about Roots & Shoots (https://www.rootsnshoots.org.uk/), which is a major part of Jane Goodall’s life today. She works with education groups across the globe in over 100 countries to put together projects and programmes related to the environment, people and wildlife. This conversation was recorded at the 2017 global Roots & Shoots summit.
A huge thanks to Kate for sharing this audio with us, and it’s likely that Kate will be bringing us a few more interviews in the future.
