Satellite Data Helps Jane Goodall Protect Chimpanzee Habitats (Video Trailer)

The view from above can be a powerful tool for conservation.

The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) uses satellite observations, including data from the NASA and USGS Landsat satellite series, in their efforts to work in partnership with local residents to understand and protect chimpanzee habitats.

This video is a sneak peek of a deeper dive into the role of satellite data in the work of the JGI team. NASA Applied Sciences Program recently interviewed Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, about this collaboration with NASA Applied Sciences’ Ecological Forecasting program area.

Goodall is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a UN Messenger of Peace.
