    This Lady is AMAZING!!!

     

    As a child in England, Dr. Jane Goodall dreamed of studying animals in their natural environment in Africa. Little did she know that this aspiration would become a reality and grow into a passion that helped her become one of the world’s most loved and respected advocates for animals and peace.

     

    I spoke with Dr. Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace in La Jolla today. She is in town to be the guest of honor at a dinner at a private estate Friday, September 28, 2012. The dinner benefits the Jane Goodall Institute, a global nonprofit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things.

     


    According to Animal Planet press release:
    On Tuesday, October 9, at 8 PM (ET/PT), Animal Planet joins Dr. Goodall on an international expedition in the television premiere of JANE’S JOURNEY. During the two-hour special, viewers embark with Dr. Goodall from her childhood home in Bournemouth, England, and travel with her to her second home, Gombe National Park, which is located on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania. At Gombe, Dr. Goodall’s groundbreaking research forever changed the world’s perspective of chimpanzees and set her on an unparalleled path. The two-hour special explores Dr. Goodall’s life among the chimpanzees and provides exclusive access and unique insight into her love of animals and her drive to empower others to make the world a better place for all living things.

     

     

    “If we are the most intellectual creature that ever walked on the planet, why are we destroying that planet?” asks Dr. Goodall. “Now is the time for us to do something. We must learn to live in peace and harmony, not only with each other, but with the natural world.”
