Jane Goodall encourages you to make a difference in the environment, people’s livelihood, and the well being of not only chimpanzees but all animals. This video produced by the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada with beautiful narration from Dr. Jane Goodall herself uses stunning imagery and Dr. Goodall’s inspirational words to encourage each and every one of us to appreciate the world and do what we can to help.
Jane Goodall is a passionate road warrior, traveling nearly 300 days each year on a worldwide speaking tour to raise awareness, inspire change, and encourage each of us to do our part in making the world a better place. Jane's love for animals started at a young age and in July of 1960, at the age of 26, she followed her dreams and traveled from England to what is now Tanzania, to bravely enter the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars, but with her unyielding patience and optimism, she won the trust of the Gombe chimpanzees, and opened a window into their lives for all to see. Jane's studies has taught humanity one of the most important lessons - that we humans are not the only beings on this planet with personalities, minds capable of thinking and above all, emotions. Her findings shook the scientific community and made us re-evaluate what it means to be human.
