In celebration of Jane Goodall’s 90th birthday on April 3rd, the sanctuary is proud to bring this FREE screening of REASONS FOR HOPE to Newtown’s Edmond Town Hall Theater.

Drawing on decades of work by the world’s most famous living ethologist and environmentalist, Jane Goodall – Reasons for Hope – is an uplifting journey around the globe to highlight good news stories that will inspire people to make a difference in the world around them.

Featured stories such as the Northern Bald Ibis’ migration over the Alps, the re-introduction of the American Bison by the Blackfeet Nation, the worldwide recognized Sudbury Regreening Story, Arizona’s leadership in renewable energy and inspiring youth-led initiatives involved in Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots align with historic footage of Jane’s beginnings as a chimpanzee researcher.

Throughout, the film reinforces Jane’s four pillars of hope that signal tremendous hope for the future: the amazing human intellect, the resilience of nature, the power and dedication of young people, and the indomitable human spirit.

Jane Goodall revolutionized how we view the world around us. Join her on this adventure of inspiration and hope.
