Roots and Shoots;Dr Jane Goodall's Institute Will Benefit If We See The Disney Movie "Chimpanzee" Which Is Comming Out April 20th

We should all try to go to the Disney movie "Chimpanzee" during the first week of it's release. Dr. Jane Goodall is not in the movie but she did consult in the making of the movie.
