As a business woman in the fashion industry in the 1960s, Lilly was a trailblazer in the fashion world and gave others permission to do the same. Jane Goodall, a trailblazer in her own right, set off from England into what is now Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She braved many unknowns and came armed with curiosity and an eagerness to understand humankind’s closest living relatives. Her ground-breaking work has introduced the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share.

Lilly’s third Print with Purpose proudly supports the Jane Goodall Institute and their mission to bring Jane Goodalls vision to life around the world and for generations to come. The Jane Goodall Institute promotes understanding and protection of great apes and their habitat and builds on the legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall, founder, to inspire individual action by young people of all ages to help animals, other people and to protect the world we all share.
What is the difference between a chimpanzee and a monkey?
While they may seem similar, chimpanzees and monkeys are totally different! Monkeys have tails and chimps do not. Chimps are also more closely associated with HUMANS than monkeys (there’s only a 5% difference in our DNA).
Why Are Chimpanzees Endangered?
Mining and lumber companies are invading the forests for supplies. By invading their space, stealing their trees and building roads in their homes, humans are causing the extinction of our chimpanzee relatives.
