Early experiences in nature enrich and shape a child’s life. That was one of the messages that came through so clearly in the new movie about Jane Goodall.
As a young girl she spent hours outside, climbed trees, and watched her dog’s behavior. As an adult she rocked the scientific community through her groundbreaking discoveries. How did you make her discoveries? Doing the same things she did as a child! She spent hours outside where the chimps lived, climbed trees, and closely watched their behavior.
JANE, the movie, takes us into the rainforest with Jane and introduces us to the chimps she studied and loved. Jane Goodall, the person, continues to inspire the world with her vision and dedication for not only saving chimps, but also for helping new generations of children learn to connect with nature through her Roots and Shoots programs.
