Jane Goodall's 80th Birthday Wish is Freedom for Chimpanzees
I am rather excited to write that Dr Jane Goodall will be celebrating her 80th year at Australia Zoo on Sunday 8th June, 2014.

This is a rare opportunity for people to come along and listen to Dr Jane Goodall discuss the highlights of her career and life. The event will be hosted by Ray Martin and feature special guests, Terri and Bindi Irwin too.

Dr Goodall has played a pivotal and profound role in changing the perceptions humanity in relation to primates and our relationship with these beautiful beings.

Dr Goodall captured the attention and imagination of the world when she lived amongst chimpanzees in deepest Africa in her youth. Since that time her life's work and passion for conservation, humanitarian efforts and as a UN Messenger of Peace have seen her travel the world for over 300 days per year.

She has dedicated her life to this work and is a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Just take a moment to watch this beautiful and touching five minute video, filmed in 2013 where Dr Jane Goodall accompanies the release of a chimpanzee, Wounda onto a special island sanctuary. In this touching documentary, Dr Goodall confides in us that her deepest birthday wish is to raise enough funds to release the 60 chimpanzees onto this island. When she speaks, you can feel the love that she has for them.

Special guests, Terri and Bindi Irwin will also share with Dr Goodall and the audience their own love, care, and compassionate dedication to conservation through their own charity, Wildlife Warriors.

It is Bindi's deepest heartfelt desire and mission to educate and empower the next generation on animals and conservation.

Terri and Bindi will share insights on life at Australia Zoo and discuss how the legacy of Steve Irwin carries on in all they do.

This event promises to be a profound opportunity to experience the real-life wisdom of these Wildlife Warriors.

Proceeds from the Australia Zoo show will be directed to Wildlife Warriors and the Jane Goodall Institute Australia.
