Dave and Tim performed a benefit concert on behalf of the Jane Goodall Institute Thursday, May 20, 2010, at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. Dave and Tim played to commemorate Gombe 50: a global celebration of Jane Goodall’s pioneering chimpanzee research and inspiring vision for our future. Dr. Goodall was in attendance and provided welcoming remarks.
The year 2010 marks a monumental milestone for JGI and its founder, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE. Fifty years ago, Goodall, who is today a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in what is now Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people to make a difference for all living things.
