Artists for Conservation

AFC member Becci Crowe will be joining a prestigious group traveling to Vienna, VA in October as a newly elected member of the Board of Directors of The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI). The Jane Goodall Institute was founded by Dr. Jane Goodall 40 years ago following her ground breaking years of research with Chimpanzees at Gombe National Park. Today, with Dr. Goodall at its helm, JGI has expanded into a global conservation organization inspiring people to conserve the natural world and improving the lives of people, animals and the environment.

Becci comments on her new Position: “I met Dr. Goodall 7 years ago. My conservation efforts became increasingly aligned with Dr. Goodall’s vision as I spent time with her in the field in The Republic of Congo and her home in Tanzania where I subsequently joined JGI Staff to retrace Jane’s historical steps up the steep mountainsides of Gombe. It’s an honor to be selected to serve alongside Dr. Goodall and her Staff with the Board of Directors to advance Jane’s global vision and secure her legacy for the future. Her leadership inspires hope in us all at a time when it is sorely needed.”
