Making a difference to protect our planet and all its inhabitants can be difficult and daunting. The Jane Goodall Institute makes this mission for environmental good easier through education and sustainability programmes, and by supporting research and community groups.
Founded by Dr. Jane Goodall in 1991, The Jane Goodall Institute works to inspire people to live sustainably, compassionately, and in harmony with animals, other people, and the environment (otherwise referred to as A.P.E.)
By supporting The Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand through The Good Registry, you will be directly supporting the Roots & Shoots programme in New Zealand and the A.P.E. Fund. Both of these work hand in hand to empower our kiwi youth to get educated and take action in sustainable, kind, and harmonious practices.
Roots & Shoots is a global education programme that aims to empower changemakers to create local sustainable changes that benefit and positively impact A.P.E. Through educational resources and financial grants from the A.P.E. fund, local youth groups are able to actively create a meaningful change for our kiwi environment.
Myrlia Purcell, Support Relations Manager at the Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand, discusses how this youth led programme sets an example for others to create good social and sustainable change.
“It shows people they can make a difference and so they go forward with the confidence of people who know they can accomplish great things.”
Donations made through The Good Registry really do contribute to fostering and supporting a unified vision — changing the world, one community at a time.
Myrlia says, “You can achieve a lot with motivation alone, but motivation plus a little bit of funding can go so far.”

We have created two simple ways to give and the gift of giving through our website:
- Create your own Good Registry for a special event (e.g. a wedding or a birthday) and ask friends to donate to a charity you choose, instead of buying gifts.
- Give Good Gift Cards instead of traditional gifts, to enable others to make donations to charities they care about.
You can hear from people who have used Good Registries and Good Gift Cards to help charities like The Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand, on our inspirational Giving Wall.
