Jane Goodall, the world-renowned chimpanzee expert, has become convinced that human health and security are crucial to the success of conservation efforts. She highlighted these links in "Exploring the Links Between Conservation and Health," an occasional paper published by the Woodrow Wilson Center's Environmental Change and Security Program (ECSP). This brief, part of ECSP's FOCUS series, is now available in French.

Goodall draws attention to two growing threats to wildlife in Africa: the bushmeat trade and deforestation. The Jane Goodall Institute, which she founded in 1977, attempts to combat these problems with integrated programs—such as the Lake Tanganyika Catchment Reforestation and Education project (TACARE)—that combine community development, health education and services, and natural resource management.
