YAKIMA, Wash.-- A woman known around the world for her work with chimpanzees spoke in front of a packed audience in Yakima.

Jane Goodall was at the Capitol Theatre talking about her life and experiences, and the work she's doing through her institute.

She spotlighted the institute's "Roots and Shoots" campaign. It encourages youth to do something good for humans, animals, and the environment. Goodall says she's seen a lot of enthusiasm about the campaign.

"There are groups of young people, you know, usually with shining eyes, especially when they're sort of... 8,9,10... Wanting to tell Dr. Jane and show Dr. Jane what they've been doing, what they are doing to make the world a better place," says Goodall.

The "Roots and Shoots" campaign has reached over a hundred countries including the United States. Goodall attended a luncheon at city hall after her speech.
