Presented in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute Australia

World-renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall shares why she is hopeful that humankind will solve the problems it has imposed on the Earth.

Celebrating the launch of the Museums Victoria Research Institute, world-renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall speaks with internationally acclaimed scientist, writer and conservationist Professor Tim Flannery about creating global change by acting locally to tackle one of the most pressing issues of our time – the loss of biodiversity.

Biodiversity is decreasing globally at an alarming rate. With the Australian Federal Government’s release of the State of the Environment report, and the UN Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) preparing to meet in China later this year, scientific experts and world leaders are considering what we can do to tackle this complex challenge and save critically threatened ecosystems across our planet.

How can we transform our relationship with nature at a local level to protect the natural world from the impacts of a growing human population and climate change?

In this exclusive conversation, Dr Jane Goodall joins us live via video link to discuss the projects she is leading through the Jane Goodall Institute, collaborating with communities and First Peoples to preserve endangered species and reduce the loss of biodiversity.

Following a keynote presentation by Dr Goodall, Professor Tim Flannery will host an intimate Q&A with Dr Goodall and Museums Victoria Research Institute’s Senior Curator of Terrestrial Vertebrates, Associate Professor Jane Melville.

This event will take place at Melbourne Museum and will also be streamed online. Guests can purchase a ticket to attend in person, or an online ticket to watch via live-stream.
