Jane Goodall Brings Message of Hope to F&M (VIDEO)

  • Jane Goodall

Primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall, whose studies of chimpanzees in their natural habitats in the African nation of Tanzania revolutionized primate research, delivered a message of hope at Franklin & Marshall College's packed Mayser Gymnasium on April 18.

Goodall spoke for 90 minutes about a love for animals that started when she was a child, her supportive mother who helped her realize her life's dream of moving to Africa to live with animals, and her intensive efforts to address the threats facing the world's wildlife and the environment.

"Is there no hope? I don’t believe that," Goodall said. "The human brain is a great source of hope as long as we use it in conjunction with the human heart."
