Jane Goodall: Helping Point the Way to a Better World | the Jane Goodall Institute

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This week we are reading an expository nonfiction article by Jane Goodall titled 10 Ways to Help Save the World. In the article, she mentions joining her youth organization Roots and Shoots. Her site describes Roots and Shoots as:

“…a powerful, youth-driven, global network of more than 8,000 groups in almost 100 countries. Together, youth of all ages are taking action to improve our world through service learning projects that promote care and concern for animals, the environment and the human community.”

Watch the video below to learn a little more about what Jane Goodall is doing to promote wildlife conservation. After watching the video, we encourage you to share your thoughts about what you have learned and what you think about this important issue. We will be making posters illustrating Jane Goodall’s “10 Ways” soon, so stop back soon to see what we came up with!
