IF you are free this Sunday morning and want to come to the zoo to meet Jane Goodall and talk about her Roots & Shoots programme please email me (Rachael O) TODAY so I can get your name on the list!!! An amazing opportunity for anybody interested in projects that benefit animals, people or the environment.

Auckland Zoo and the Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand (JGI NZ) are inviting a number of educators and students from schools around the Auckland region to hear from Dr. Jane about Roots & Shoots and how this programme is creating change all over the world. You’ll also hear from the JGI NZ National Roots & Shoots Advisor on how Roots & Shoots can help develop essential learning skills, with direct links to key competencies and areas of learning and how you can make Roots & Shoots happen in your school.

Roots & Shoots is JGI’s global community conservation programme. It empowers young people of all ages to design and implement sustainability action projects with positive impacts for animals, people and the environment (A.P.E). Hundreds of thousands of Roots & Shoots members all over the world are working to improve their communities and be the type of leaders that our world needs. Together, the actions taken by each individual weave together to create a tapestry of hope...a powerful ripple of change. Join us in our mission!
