Dr. Jane Goodall: Reasons for Hope

Start Date: April 8, 2024

From 19:00 to 20:20


Sanderson Centre, 88 Dalhousie St., Brantford, ON


The James Hillier Foundation in cooperation with the Sanderson Centre is pleased to present Dr. Jane Goodall: Reason for Hope.

Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot in the forests of Tanzania in 1960, armed with little more than a notepad, a pair of binoculars and a dream of living in Africa and observing wildlife. From the moment she witnessed a chimpanzee make a tool to the moment she decided to leave the park in order to save the chimpanzees she cared for, Dr. Goodall will describe her extraordinary scientific breakthroughs in animal behaviour and her journey to becoming one of the world’s most prominent active conservationists. Dr. Goodall’s talks never fail to inspire people of all ages as she recounts her unique experiences as a young woman working alone in the rainforest and her hope for a future where people live in harmony with nature.

The James Hillier Foundation was established to honour the legacy of Dr. James Hillier, a Brantford born, internationally recognized scientist, who helped pioneer the development of the electron microscope. Each year, the Foundation provides $20,000 scholarships to up to four Brantford / Brant high school students wishing to pursue a career in scientific research.
