How science and technology innovations can help protect forests and save wildlife – insights from 60 years of Gombe research and Tacare community-driven efforts to protect forests for people, chimpanzees, and ecosystem health.
The third edition of a new series of Jane Goodall Institute 'Wildlife Webinars', hear from JGI's lead on Conservation Science, Dr Lilian Pintea, as he talks about the approaches and innovations being used by the Institute and partners to revolutionize conservation, accelerate our learning and improve decisions and actions about climate change, habitat protection and disease prevention.
As the Vice President for Conservation Science at the Jane Goodall Institute - USA, Dr Pintea has been working closely with local Jane Goodall Institutes, communities, and governments in Tanzania, Uganda, DRC and the Republic of Congo to adopt and use satellite imagery, Geographic Information Systems, mobile and cloud mapping technologies combined with participatory research and citizen science to tackle some of the hardest challenges in conservation.
You will hear about our work, but there will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out what you can do to help our closest cousins.
Wildlife Webinars will raise vital funds for JGI's work saving chimpanzees and their habitats - particularly in response to COVID-19 which has led to a loss of income in our sanctuaries. Registration is just $5 and any additional donations received as a result of the webinar will be matched - so your support will be doubled.
