Dr Jane Goodall celebrates record-breaking 60-year study with immersive online experience

[ad_1]

World renowned British ethologist and conservationist, Dr Jane Goodall, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace, celebrates record-breaking 60-year study with immersive online experience

The 14th July, World Chimpanzee Day, marks 60 years since trailblazer, Dr Jane Goodall first arrived in Gombe national park in Tanzania, to begin her ground-breaking study of wild chimpanzees. Thanks to students and field staff of the Gombe Stream Research Centre that study continues today, funded through the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), and has been awarded a Guinness World Record for the longest running study of Wild Chimpanzees.

To commemorate this achievement JGI is presenting a brand new storymap, created in partnership with Esri and Blue Raster, which showcases the tremendous contributions and living legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall, JGI, and the Gombe chimpanzees. It includes stories, information about the research, and our conservation efforts through Tacare – JGI’s method of community-based conservation and conservation science.

This new storymap gives audiences a unique experience of the contributions of this special place of discovery with interactive maps, intimate photos, and an immersive roadmap taking participants on a journey spanning 60 years, from the time Dr Jane first arrived in Gombe, through the development of the research centre and work of researchers, and the development of Tacare. How amazing that we are still learning new facts about these chimpanzees and their environment today.

Gombe is a living laboratory, home to the world’s most studied group of wild chimpanzees’ says Dr Goodall ‘but the impact of our work there is far greater than one species or one forest. The results of our research, and the collaborative approach we take in our programmes show how humans, other animals and the environment are intrinsically connected.

Dr. Goodall’s ground-breaking discoveries at Gombe redefined scientific perception of our relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom. Dr. Goodall’s story inspired many young women to pursue a career in science and she continues to influence millions of individuals, institutions, and organisations around the world.

Over 250 researchers from Tanzania and many other countries have conducted studies in Gombe many of whom have gone on to work at major universities and other institutions all over the globe. And they, in turn, have inspired others to follow similar careers. The research has resulted in some 50 PhD and Masters degrees.

Jane first set foot in Gombe at age 26. One of her breakthrough discoveries, that Chimpanzees make and use tools, is considered one of the greatest scientific contributions of the 20th century. Today, at 86, Dr. Goodall continues to work tirelessly, currently operating from her home in Bournemouth instead of her usual 300 days-a-year global travel. Her mission is to raise awareness about the harm humans are doing to the planet, raise funds, and to give her reasons for hope that we can still turn things around.

‘I was 10 years old when I decided I would go to Africa and live with wild animals. But I was told I could not possibly do this as I was ‘just a girl’ and we had little money But my mother always said, “If you really want something, you’re going to have to work hard, [you’ll have to] take advantage of every opportunity but don’t give up.” I’ve taken that message to young people all around the world.”

You can hear these stories and more in her own words as Dr. Goodall takes you on a journey of discovery through her childhood dreams of living alongside wildlife, first steps in Gombe, greatest revelations, and her reasons for hope that we can save the planet if we get together and take action now https://bit.ly/GombeStoryMap
Dr. Goodall will also be participating in a virtual event at St. James Piccadilly (sp) on 22nd July at 7:30 p.m. https://bit.ly/22JulyVirtualLiveEvent

Dr. Ed CBD celebrates record-breaking growth in the UK

[ad_1]

Dr. Ed®, the flagship brand of The CBD Group, celebrated some of the fastest month-on-month growth for a new CBD brand in the UK. Dr. Ed®, co-founded and headed by friends Dr. Edward Jones and Alex McMillan, has continued to go from strength to strength in the cannabis sector, focussing on science and consumer education in an often-confusing market.

Their launch range of broad-spectrum CBD oils has found great popularity with the British public and led to a market-leading repurchase rate. With close to 10,000 bottles sold since launch, Dr. Ed® is now looking to expand their operation into new territories including Europe and Asia backed by a new round of capital investment and distribution agreements.

As the Marketing Director of The CBD Group, Alex McMillan has always been very aware that brands in the CBD industry must build consumer trust by correctly labelling their products, having them thoroughly tested and being as transparent and honest as possible with enquires.

Alex says ‘The CBD industry has absolutely exploded in the last year. It is the fastest growing area of the health and wellness industry by a country mile and lots of companies are falling flat when it comes to taking responsibility for their products, the way in which they are made and how they are advertised. The CBD space is confusing enough for consumers without companies selling sub-par products to make a quick buck. Luckily there are some really good CBD brands out there who are focussed on consumer education and creating top notch products and we like to think we are included in that list’

Dr. Edward Jones continues, ‘Recent media investigations into high-street CBD brands have highlighted some worrying results whether that be incorrect product labelling or illegal levels of certain regulated compounds within the products. We’ve always taken a science-first approach to our business. Everything we produce is double lab tested for extra peace of mind. We’d hate to let our customers down after spending so much time building up a great rapport with them as a business that really knows it’s stuff when it comes to CBD’.

With the contract manufacturing arm of The CBD Group being launched last month, the group aims to become one of the biggest players in CBD production in the UK, offering a range of services for emerging and established CBD brands.

Nexa Digital Marketing Agency celebrates record-breaking 2019 with top industry accolades

[ad_1]

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates; 7 January 2020 – Dubai-based digital-first agency, Nexa has become the first agency in the UAE/ MENA region to be awarded HubSpot Diamond Partner Status, placing the company in the top 2% of HubSpot partners globally.

Nexa was first made a Certified HubSpot Partner in 2014 and has since become the leading growth-marketing agency in the region, which led to this exciting promotion.

As one of the world’s leading inbound marketing, CRM, sales and service measurement platforms, HubSpot allows companies to grow their businesses through inbound software, services, and support. In order to become one of Hubspot’s top tier suppliers, partner agencies must not only demonstrate the highest standards of inbound marketing services, but must show continued mastery of the HubSpot platform, measured through client growth and retention. This growth should come from the implementation of a strong digital growth strategy resulting in the generation of qualified leads and return on investment.

HubSpot’s Senior VP & Managing Director, International, Jeetu Mahtani said, with recognition of Nexa’s promotion, “Nexa was HubSpot’s first partner in the Gulf region and joined the partner program over 5 years ago. They have been integral in educating the region about inbound marketing and sales and have applied their expertise to strategic clients in the technology, real estate, and education space. One of the key differentiators with Nexa is their proven capabilities to customize their services to find the right solution and solve for the customer’s needs. We look forward to Nexa continuing their growth and success in the region.”

Nexa was also recently awarded Premier Google Partner status, specializing in search ads, mobile ads and display ads — a designation reserved for only 50 partners in the MENA region. To qualify, Nexa was required to meet specific criteria, including having Google-certified affiliates within the company and demonstrating solid overall advertising revenue and growth.

Alongside core benefits such as product training, certification and product updates, Premier Google Partners also benefit from dedicated account support, executive business training and strategy consulting, enabling them to deliver all-inclusive marketing strategies which are bespoke to their clients’ requirements.

In addition to these most recent accolades, Nexa also claimed multiple awards at the 2019 MENA Search Awards, hosted in Dubai, including winning ‘Best Integrated Campaign’ for the third consecutive year – this time for its work with an education client using HubSpot.

Amit Vyas, CEO of Nexa said, “2019 has been an incredible year for Nexa and I am delighted that this has been recognised by high-profile partners such as HubSpot and Google as well through industry awards voted for by our peers.
