Dr Jane Goodall is one of the most prolific primatologists and ethologists (study of animal behaviour) in modern science and considered the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. To add to her already impressive accomplishments, she is also a UN Messenger of Peace and was made a DBE in 2004. These days Dr Goodall travels all over the world educating and campaigning for her cause of protecting the environment and wildlife, particularly chimpanzees; and is an excellent orator.
Roots and Shoots is a programme under the Jane Goodall institute and its main aim is to connect youth through projects and campaigns revolving around animals, the environment and the community. This event is suitable for children aged 10 and above and is well worth attending. Tickets are available at RM50 for adults and RM25 for students and senior citizens.
