Conservation lecture event

6 September 2011

For those of our supporters unable to make it to the Zoo for her lecture, we will be streaming the talk live via our website.  For a $5 fee you can watch the lecture and following panel discussion from the comfort of your home or desk.

All proceeds from this webcast will go toward supporting Zoos Victoria and the Jane Goodall Institute's conservation efforts, helping us to preserve habitat and save animals.

In partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, the Zoos Victoria Foundation presents a conservation lecture event to discuss the current critical state of our closest wild relatives.

With special guest Dr Jane Goodall as our keynote speaker, and a panel discussion with primate conservation experts, the event will explore the important work currently being undertaken, the need for community awareness and the role zoos play to ensure our amazing great apes will survive in the wild.

Proudly supported by the Myer Foundation and the Yulgilbar Foundation, this important conservation event is not to be missed!

About Jane Goodall 

"Only if we understand can we care. Only if we care will we help. Only if we help shall they be saved." 

In the summer of 1960, 26-year-old Jane Goodall arrived on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in East Africa to study the area's wild chimpanzee population. Although at the time it was unheard of for a woman to venture into the African wilderness, Jane persisted as the trip meant the fulfillment of her childhood dream. Jane’s work in Tanzania would prove to be more successful than anyone could have possibly imagined.

The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Australia is involved in global and local environmental, conservation and humanitarian action. We support programs in wildlife research, education and community centred conservation. JGI promotes informed and compassionate action to improve the environment shared by all of Earth's living creatures.
