The Acadia Alumni Association in partnership with the Acadia Sustainability Office and Acadia University present a special event at the Festival Theatre on April 8th, 2019 at 2:00 PM with Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace.
The afternoon lecture, titled, Jane Goodall: Inspiration in Action, is student-focused with a message of hope for the future. Students are encouraged to attend to be inspired by the life and experience of Dr. Goodall.
Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and a passionate interest in wildlife, Jane Goodall ventured into the forests of Tanzania nearly 60 years ago to begin her ground breaking research on chimpanzees. Since that time, Dr. Goodall has not only impressed upon the world the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction, she has also helped redefine species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the globe, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living creatures and the planet we share.
