The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada was founded in 1977 to encourage protection of chimpanzees and recognize the central role people play in the well-being of animals and habitat. Community-centered conservation and development programs have been established across Africa and include the Jane Goodall’s renowned Roots Shoots program for youth.

The Jane Goodall Collection by G Adventures was founded in 2016, at which time G Adventures and the Jane Goodall Institute have teamed up to raise awareness of the importance of wildlife-friendly and responsible tourism. Together, they offer a curated program of 20 trips that emphasize responsible wildlife sightings.

Social entrepreneur and G Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip considers Goodall a hero and personal friend.

“It is an absolute honor to have our company affiliated with the work of Dr. Goodall and her team of champions, but even more, to support her vision of raising awareness and respect among travelers,” said Poon Tip. “Ever since I first saw her picture on the cover of National Geographic as a child and read about her passion and purpose, she has inspired me as a leader, an explorer and an entrepreneur.”

All trips in the collection, which include itineraries across G Adventures’ numerous different tour styles, are endorsed by Goodall.

“We are proud to be going ‘G for Goodall’ this week,” said G Adventures’ vice president of marketing and customer service, Lauren Michell. “Her milestone birthday is a happy occasion for us to lend extra support to her organization’s mission and celebrate her inspiring life.”

Goodall has also given her formal support to G Adventures’ Animal Welfare Policy, which governs the small group tour operator’s more than 700 trips around the globe.

“This amazing lady and her dedication to helping us see our better selves is like a guiding North Star,” said Michell. “If we can offer people the chance to observe some of the planet’s most amazing wildlife while helping them gain greater respect for diverse communities, cultures and nature, we’re fulfilling our brand’s purpose of changing lives through travel.”
