Our great thanks and HUGE Chimp Hug to a Volunteer Hero, Debby Veldstra!

20 September 2018

A Pant-Hoot goes out to Debby Veldstra for all her support over the past 5 years. Debby was the wizard behind the info@ email and helped keep JGIA systems up and running. She helped with tours, Gift Certificates, recruiting and was always on hand to help in any way she could.

“I have many fond memories of my time with JGIA. The organisation is close to my heart and always will be. One of my favourite moments is Jane Goodall talking to my daughter in the back of my car, driving to the youth conference in Geelong (3 June 2014). Amazing ladies, spread over generations“.

JGIA does not manage to do what we do without the generous support of volunteers. So, we thank you Debby, from all of the team and we wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
