    Very honoured to meet with Dr. Jane Goodall today - and delighted her Institute is opening a new office in Edmonton.
    Anyone got any more info on this new office?

    Cool.

    (Won't make the anti-science Calgary Imperials happy, which is even cooler. )
    Let's make Edmonton better.

    They didn't mind when Harper gave them 4 million, although I suppose JT will have to outdo that! She is great with chimps though..

    Do you really have to bring up your Calgary hate in every thread? It's getting rather obsessive and tiresome.

    It will definitely help with the RAM and other research bodies.

    Guess this was announced last month, but didn't hear anything about it

    EDMONTON, March 23, 2016 /CNW/ - The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada (JGI Canada) is proud to announce the opening of the organization's first western office, located in the same office building as the Environmental Services Association of Alberta – a longtime supporter and partner.
    To celebrate the opening, JGI Canada is holding a special event on March 23 from 3:30pm to 6:00pm. CEO Andria Teather will be giving a short address at 4:15pm.

    Founded in 1977, the Jane Goodall Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. JGI is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, the global environmental and humanitarian program for youth of all ages, with groups in more than 130 countries.

    There are 400 active Roots & Shoots groups in Canada, engaged in hands-on, community-based projects from coast to coast to coast. Alberta is also home to the first JGI Roots & Shoots school, the Westmount Charter School where the faculty implemented the program in every classroom to great success. Teachers reported that students became increasingly aware of community issues, the connections between people, animals and the environment, as well as skills in leading a project.

    JGI Canada is pleased to establish a new hub in western Canada to raise awareness about conservation and continue to grow the Roots & Shoots program.

    Location: JGI Canada Western Office
    Suite 102
    2528 Ellwood Drive SW
    Edmonton, AB
