Happy New Year from Roots & Shoots!

At this time of the year, we at the Jane Goodall Institute always think about the wonderful things 
that our members and friends have done in their communities and around the world.

Your projects on the ground are, every day, helping to improve the environment, and
raise the quality of life for animals and people. And now with 20 years of these efforts, 
the impact that Roots & Shoots, has made is huge! We couldn't be more proud of
you, and appreciate everything you do. 

Looking forward to 2012, we are excited to introduce many new initiatives,
resources, and even a brand new website. 

We'll send more details about what's on the horizon in the coming weeks, but for now
I wanted to leave you with this amazing video from our friends at JGI's Tchimpounga
Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in Pointe Noire, Republic of Congo, Africa. 


On behalf of Dr. Jane and the entire Jane Goodall Institute we wish you a happy and
healthy holiday season, and a wonderful new year.

Every individual makes a difference every day. It's up to us what that difference is
going to be.
