The Problem

Of all the factors causing the world’s species to become extinct, habitat loss is the greatest threat they face. As more natural lands become developed for use by humans, many animals are pushed out of their homes and eventually face extinction. In addition, wildlife poachers pose a serious threat to animal populations, making it even more challenging for endangered species to survive.

The Solution Offered by the Jane Goodall Institute

The Jane Goodall Institute began their Roots and Shoots program in 1991 to invest in young leaders who identify environmental problems in their communities and work to ensure the continued safety of the wild animals surrounding them. By identifying emerging leaders and empowering them to tackle environmental issues that affect their communities, JGF is making a noticeable change for the environmental health of these communities.
