Dr. Jane Goodall To Launch Australia/New Zealand Tour In 2024

TEG Dainty has announced that Dr Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace and Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute will return to Australia and New Zealand in May 2024.








Tickets on sale on Friday December 8 at 11am (local) at the link below.


Dr Jane Goodall is an English ethologist and activist and one of the world's foremost experts on chimpanzees.  Goodall first went to Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania to observe its chimpanzees in 1960.  Her studies made the ground breaking discovery that humans were not the only species to make and modify tools.  The work she began continues to this day as one of the longest longitudinal studies of any species on earth.

Dr Goodall is one of the very few people accepted into a PhD program without an undergraduate degree.   She is considered the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, after 60 years studying the social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees.

After a long absence brought on by the COVID pandemic, Goodall, 89, is delighted to be returning to Australia and New  Zealand to meet with her supporters and share her reasons for hope in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland.

The shows will be a presentation and lecture from Dr Jane Goodall and will include an audience Q & A  segment along with a fireside conversation with a moderator.

“I love Australia and New Zealand with its rich biodiversity and proud First Nations heritage”, she said. “It will be tremendous to catch up with old friends and meet some of the young leaders making a difference through Roots & Shoots”.

Goodall's Australian office of the Jane Goodall Institute has been operating since 2007 and New Zealand since 2017; they now have a suite of educational programs that inspire young people to get out in their community and make a difference.

Jane Goodall Institute Australia (JGIA) CEO, James Forbes, shared that the flagship Resource Box for Schools Program reaches some 4,000 schools across Australia.

“The resource box program is just one of several inspiring educational programs we now operate to support young people to take action in their local communities”, Forbes said.

“Eco-anxiety and nature deficit disorder are two very real problems impacting the next generation so we have a responsibility to address this head on through programs that give young people hope”.

JGIA is partnered with the University of Adelaide and Resilient Youth Australia to study how education can reduce the anxiety associated with the climate and biodiversity crises.

Lead researcher, Dr Mark Kohler said that children today are experiencing increasing mental health problems and declining school performance.

“Spending time in nature and developing a connection to nature has been associated with more positive mental health outcomes in children”, Kohler said.

Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots is a youth education program developed by Dr Jane Goodall in Tanzania in 1991 and today reaches millions of young people in more than 60 countries around the world. It is why she continues to travel around the world inspiring young people to take action.

“In all my lectures and books, I focus on reasons for hope. But today, it's getting harder and harder to take that message of hope around the world. Todays' young people—everywhere I go—they're so excited and empowered. We're listening to their voices. That gives us a reason to hope”.
