It’s nearly Dr Jane Goodall’s Birthday, and Roots & Shoots around the world will be joining together to help her celebrate. She’ll be turning 82 years old, and it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on so many years spent helping people, animals and the environment. There are lots of ways you can get involved!
Live chat with Jane – April 5th
How would you like to join a conversation with Dr Jane Goodall? On the 5th April, you’ll be able to do just that! She’ll be doing a free global live chat on her Facebook account on Tuesday April 5th at 11am CT which is 5pm British Summer Time.
She’ll be joining us live from Austin in the USA, and the live video feed will be hosted on her page and also the Roots & Shoots USA page.
You can get involved by not only watching, but also submitting questions you’d like Jane to answer during the chat: all you have to do is visit www.facebook.com/events/
You can also follow the action through social media, using the following hashtags: #JaneGoodall #rootsandshoots #Janeswish #wheresJane and the main hashtag for the event is #chatwithJane. Don’t forget to add these to your Facebook posts and Tweets.

Finally, artist Fernando Turbo created this beautiful image to celebrate Dr Jane’s Birthday. We think it’s just perfect.
