Just as this young shoot pushed through the concrete to reach the light, Jane Goodall
believes that the strength of young people can make the world a better place.



Roots & Shoots in Africa


Roots & Shoots members from Richilieu Valley High School present a gift for the chimps at
the Fauna Foundation Sanctuary.




"Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but
to reach the light they can break through brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are
all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds and thousands of roots and
shoots, hundreds and thousands of young people around the world, can break through these
walls.

You CAN change the world."
- Jane Goodall
In the Fall of 1999 JGI Canada was host to the Annual Roots & Shoots North American Youth Summit.

On the shores of the Indian Ocean in February 1991, Roots & Shoots was born. A group of 16
secondary school students from eight different schools gathered on the verandah of Dr.
Jane's house in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Jane had been talking to the students at various
schools, and it had become clear to her that many students were fascinated with animal
behavior and environmental concerns, but had no classes in school that covered those
subjects. To rectify the problem, each school chose a few representatives to join Jane to
decide how to bring these subjects into the students' lives through out-of-school
activities.


That first morning there was much discussion on chimpanzees and the fact that they had
personalities, could reason and use tools, had close family bonds, and felt emotions. The
students decided that the qualities existed in many other animals as well - including

  • Gorillas in the Mist
    Gorillas in the Mist Gorillas in the Mist Gorillas in the Mist by Dian Fossey is an excellent account of her thirteen years studying gorillas in the Virungas Mountains. Gorillas in the Mist shows the public that gorillas were not the evil monsters that we have come to think of them as. Through careful research Dain Fossey was able to bring an understanding to the eyes of the public about gorilla behavior, social structure, and the gorilla’s individualism. Dian Fossey started her research in Sept
  • In the Shadow of Man
    In the Shadow of Man In this paper I am going to discuss how anthropology is a science. I am also going to explain how Jane Goodall is a scientist with her works with chimpanzees, and how that is known as primatology. I will also look at the order primates in correspondence with Jane Goodall’s book on primates, specifically the chimpanzee. Anthropology is a science; it has four aspects in which you can study. Anthropology takes a look at humankind and with its subdiciplines you can break down in

    chimps vs humans Since the first days of human thought into their beginnings, chimpanzees have played a vital role in showing who we were. The chimpanzee, one of the great apes, makes it home in the forests of Central and West Africa. Their long arms and legs adapt them for living in such regions as lowland jungles and mountainous regions. Humans are classified in the order Primates, and family Hominade. Within this family, human beings, our nearest living relatives, the African apes, are also p

  • The Homebase theory
    The Homebase theory Glynn Isaac Defines "the Homebase Hypothesis" It has been argued since Darwin\'s day that the great apes were man\'s nearest living relatives, and as evidence emerged during the late 1960\'s of the hunting propensities and simple tool use of chimpanzees (Goodall 1986), anthropologists found more and more reason to presume similarity of behavior between modern (e.g., Pan troglodytes or Pan panicus) and ancient varieties of hominids (Tanner 1981). Still, modern humans are not c

  • Chimpanzee
    Chimpanzee Chimpanzee The acts of cannibalism and infanticide are very apparent in the behavior of the chimpanzee. Many African studies show that wild chimpanzees kill and eat infants of their own species (Goodall, 1986:151). Although there is not a clear answer why chimps engage in this very violent and sometimes gruesome behavior there are many ideas and suggestions. This essay will deal with chimpanzee aggression, cannibalism and infanticide. This paper will present information on major resea

    Animal Emotions Animal Emotions Do animals feel joy, love, fear, anguish or despair? What ere emotions, and perhaps more importantly, how do scientists prove animals are capable of emotion? Sea lion mothers have often been seen wailing painfully and squealing eerily as they watch their babies being eaten by killer whales. Buffaloes have also been observed sliding playfully across ice, excitedly screaming “Gwaaa.” Emotions are defined broadly as psychological phenomena that help in behavioral ma
  • Anthro Paper
    Anthro Paper In a search to find our ancestors, several anthropologists have found evidence to support their conclusions. In the films about Don Johanson\'s discovery of Lucy in Hadar, one may be very intrigued by the first film but very disturbed by the second film. I was very intrigued by the findings of the Australopithecines. The idea that Lucy, the skeleton found in Hadar, Africa, was closely related to the human species was amazing. Lucy was bipedal and her brain was smaller than that of
  • Jane Goodall
    Jane Goodall Jane Goodall May 19, 2001 Jane Goodall is one of the worlds most admired women, acclaimed scientist, and conservationist (www.nationalgeographic.com). The work that she does is called ethology, which is the study of animal behavior. Such a successful woman has numerous admirable qualities. She has contributed greatly to society as well as to the animal kingdom. Her research paved the way for countless primate studies, and has changed the way many people view chimpanzees. Trying to
  • Primates
    primates Since the beginning of time, man has evolved through primate evolution. Each primate has acquired different characteristics over a period of millions of years. The ecosystem has experienced an enormous change in this phase. Most major changes have occurred due to the phenomenon of continental drift. Other such factors are deforestation, natural calamities and, more recently, global warming. These changes have caused primates to become less arboreal and more and more terrestrial. In ord

The first time she went to Tanzania was in July 14, 1960 when she was just 26 years old. Because of her research and studies of many different chimpanzees, we as humans will be able to understand ourselves and other primates better. At first, Jane just sat on a peak at the top of a mountain, so that she could observe the chimps. The chimpanzees wo

An article is reviewed and evaluated encompassing different points of view and theories. Learned recognition and self-awareness is compared and discussed. Self-awareness in Primates: Fact or Fiction Learning is a change in behavior due to experience (Chance, 2003, p. 36).

    Seven Rules For Observational Research Seven rules for observational research: how to watch people do stuff Observational research, ethnography, or, in plain English, watching people do stuff, seems to be hot these days. Newsweek touts it ( Enough Talk, August 18, 1997), which means it\'s getting to be mainstream, but I find that a lot of clients aren\'t very comfortable with it. Certainly, compared to traditional focus groups, mini-groups, or one-on-one interviews, observational research accoun

    language 1. Does thought depend on language? We human beings may not be the most admirable species on the planet, or the most likely to survive for another millennium, but we are without any doubt at all the most intelligent. We are also the only species with language. What is the relation between these two obvious facts? Before going on to consider that question, I must pause briefly to defend my second premise. Don\'t whales and dolphins, vervet monkeys and honey bees (the list goes on) have l
