The Kid Should See This

Dr. Jane Goodall’s Google Doodle for Earth Day 2018

In 1970, 20 million Americans came together to deliver a message: our environment sustains us, and so we too must work to sustain it. Since then, Earth Day has spawned a movement of millions across the globe working towards a sustainable future. This day of solidarity sheds light on ways everyone can contribute to a better planet.

Today’s annual Earth Day Doodle was created in partnership with one of the planet’s most influential advocates: Ethologist (animal behavior expert), conservationist, activist, and animal-lover Dr. Jane Goodall, who has dedicated her life to studying and protecting our environment.

Learn more about Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, a program for young people who want to make a positive impact on on environmental, conservation, and humanitarian issues:

“The organization has local chapters in over 140 countries with over 8000 local groups worldwide that involve nearly 150,000 youth. Many of the chapters operate through schools and other organizations. Participants are encouraged to identify and work on problems in their own communities affecting people, animals, or the environment.

Read more about this incredible woman and her work in three smart picture books for kids: Me… Jane, I am Jane Goodall (Ordinary People Change the World), and The Watcher: Jane Goodall’s Life with the Chimps. We’ve also enjoyed this graphic novel: Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas.

Plus, learn more about Jane Goodall in these videos on TKSST: A Jane Goodall documentary made from 100+ hours of lost 1960s footage and The Story of Jane Goodall and Her Chimps.
