The world-renowned Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) will make a “Roots & Shoots” presentation to Hugh Mercer Elementary School students on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015, as part of Marstel-Day’s #StandWithWildlife campaign.

The presentation will begin with a personalized video message from Jane Goodall, the world’s leading expert on chimpanzees. The event will use stories and games tailored to Hugh Mercer Elementary’s students to educate them about wildlife and conservation. The public can watch a livestream of the event at 1 p.m.

The event launches the inclusion of wildlife conservation as a core area in the elementary school’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum, as of this 2015-2016 academic year.

Rebecca Rubin, Marstel-Day president and CEO, created #StandWithWildlife, previously known as the Wildlife Conservation Awareness Campaign, to highlight major conservation issues and present ways individuals and organizations can help address them. “Saving nature is our top priority,” she said of her international environmental and conservation consulting firm.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is a global environmental and humanitarian program for youth.
