Inspiring hope through action. Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace is a world-renowned ethologist and environmentalist inspiring greater understanding and action on behalf of the natural world. The Jane Goodall Institute UK aims to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment we all share. We support community conservation in Africa and we are growing the next generation of compassionate changemakers through our environmental youth programme Roots & Shoots which we deliver in the UK and the UAE.

An absorbing fictional tale that will steal hearts and open minds about the plight of the pangolin, the only mammal with scales and sadly one of the most trafficked animals in the world.

After a blissful babyhood being cared for by her loving mother, Pangolina ventures out alone into the forest to become an independent adult, helped along by wise, older animal companions, including a civet and a bat. But one day cruel hunters trap Pangolina, putting her into a cage along with her friends and bring them to a market to be sold. To the rescue comes a small girl who knows that pangolins are friendly fellow creatures who have feelings too.

Dr Goodall’s new book, The Book of Hope is out now!

Dr Goodall’s new book The Book of Hope is available now with free UK postage & packaging from our web shop!

Through intimate and thought-provoking dialogue with Douglas Abrams, Jane explores one of the most sought after and least understood elements of human nature: hope.

For the first time Jane also tells the story of how she became a messenger of hope, from living through World War II, to her years at Gombe, to realising she had to leave the forest and chimpanzees she had grown to love to take her message to people around the world and her revelations about her next, and perhaps final, adventure.
