On January 27, 2015, the Jane Goodall Institute offices all over the world issued a "Call to Action" asking for your help collecting and recycling mobile devices. WHY? Electronic devices contain metals and minerals that are extracted from threatened chimpanzee habitats. Collecting those minerals devastates chimpanzee homes and causes conflict among people. We know that Roots & Shoots groups have been responding to JGI's "Call to Action" and we want to hear about it! Visit rootsandshoots.org/5000devices to add your devices to our total and help us reach 5,000.
