Dr. Jane Goodall Calling on Leaders to make Ethical Choices in order to Save the Planet

Updated: Jul 24, 2019

We had the honor of meeting Dr. Jane Goodall at the Time 100 Submit last week. If you know Dr. Goodall, you know she’s one of the leading voices in conservation but most importantly one of the few people who discovered the importance of wildlife conservation, environmentalism and community initiatives before they became common place as we know them today. Leonardo De Caprio call her one of the most important and impactful leaders on the planet.

During her talk, Dr. Goodall talked about few of her discoveries which scientists had yet to discover. For example, one of her landmark discoveries with chimpanzees in Gombe National Park in Tanzania was the fact that chimps and humans are more alike such as personality, mind and emotion and she made most of her discoveries with no protocol what so ever.

She chose to go to Tanzania at the age of 26 to study chimpanzees, and the research she conducted there, in the jungle at the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika, ended up changing behavioral science forever. Since then she has committed her life to environmental protection. Even now, at the young age of 85, Jane spends nearly every day spreading optimism and raising awareness worldwide; hers is a powerful message to protect the inherent rights of every living creature, to provide hope for future generations and to sound an urgent call against the greatest environmental threat of all—climate change. Anyone who has heard her speak, or heard her story, has been mesmerized by her life’s work and moved by her philanthropic legacy.

Dr. Goodall called on billionaires and business leaders to make ethical choices in order to save the planet. “We have to get together and take action now,” Goodall said. “When hundreds, thousands, millions, and hopefully billions of us make ethical choices then we start moving toward a better world.”

Dr. Goodall continue to press the need for more action on climate changeand stressed how saving wildlife will also help address global warming. “You can’t save chimpanzees without saving the forest, which means you save all the biodiversity in that forest, which is so important and you save an environment which is so vital to us,” she said. Moreover, Dr. Goodall had a message for the forces in society that have stopped the world from addressing global warming. “Deniers of climate change, I want them to go to the Antarctic where the sea ice is melting faster than ever before and dump them in the middle of it,” she said to laughter and applause.

Dr. Goodall has spent 60 years of her life the field and continue to fiercely do so. Since 1960, she has served as ambassador for wildlife and the conservation cause receiving numerous honors and launching multiple initiatives, including the Jane Goodall Institute, a global conservation group.
