The Singapore chapter of the Jane Goodall Institute is a non-profit organisation focused on environmental & wildlife conservation, as well as youth leadership & empowerment in Singapore. We aim to nurture Singapore’s next generation of 'Jane Goodalls' - environmentally & socially-conscious individuals and leaders. To achieve our goal, we have two key areas of focus:
1. We help youths build character and leadership through our Roots & Shoots programme which empowers young people to make positive change happen for the environment, animals & people. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects and youth-led campaigns. We are also in the midst of developing a service learning curriculum to help teachers in Singapore with their efforts in providing character building teaching.
2. Our “Living with Macaques” programme help people understand the last visible frontier of wildlife in Singapore - our Long-tailed Macaques. This includes education & exposure through monkey walks, roadshow, field guide, a children’s activity workbook and smartphone apps. In addition, we support the study of primates in Singapore through research grants offered under our Primates Research Initiative.
