IndiaBiostreams: IUBS Centenary Lectures | Gombe and Beyond

IUBS Centenary Lectures Episode 3

Enjoy this talk by Dr. Jane Goodall (Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute& UN messenger of peace) on her research at Gombe, moderated by Dr. Lucilla Spini (Fondazione Circolo Fratelli Rosselli, Firenze, Italy).

The International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) was established in 1919 as a non-governmental and non-profit organization comprising of National Academies and international scientific Associations and Societies. Since then IUBS is functioning as a global platform of scientists from all disciplines and nationalities for cooperation, interaction, and collaboration to promote research, training, and education in biological sciences.

To commemorate the completion of 100 years of promoting excellence in biological sciences, IUBS has launched a Webinar Series bringing the best of all disciplines to discuss evolution, taxonomy, ecology, biodiversity, and other topics that represent unified biology and the topics of prime importance to address contemporary problems such as climate change, endangered species, food & nutrition, health, etc.

In this webinar, Dr. Jane Goodall talks about the research that she began more than 60 years ago, which is ongoing today into the lives of the wild chimpanzees in Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. Her pioneering work has changed the way we look at wildlife and conservation activities across the world. The TACARE programme has empowered the communities living around Gombe to become JGI’s partners in conservation and is being replicated in other African countries. Dr. Goodall speaks about her early work, how it changed the way we think about both chimpanzees and ourselves, and about the many programmes established by the Jane Goodall Institute that are working to sustain both wildlife and human communities.
