Dr. Goodall's Open Letter to New York Blood Center Regarding the Care of Chimpanzees at the Vilab II Sanctuary in Liberia
Starting today, in honor of Earth Day, Google.org is matching all donations through April 30, up to $20,000. Dr. Jane took the Google Doodle Earth Day quiz and found out that her animal is the Whooping Crane! Like the Whooping Crane, chimpanzees, the species Dr. Goodall has studied for more than five decades, are also endangered.
Three hundred days a year is a lot of time to be on the road and since 1986, that is exactly how Dr. Jane Goodall spends her time. Dr. Goodall’s days are filled with giving lectures, meeting with public officials, spending time with young people involved in Roots & Shoots and encouraging each one of us to make a difference to better our world for people, animals and the environment we all share. Dr. Goodall inspires by doing, by taking action — instead of just talking about what can be done.
On August 12, 2014 people all around the world will celebrate world elephant day. It is estimated that 96 elephants die each day and the overall elephant population is decreasing at an alarming rate. If we do not act now, it is very clear that these beautiful animals will become extinct in our lifetime. Dr. Goodall explains the urgency in raising awareness in her message on World Elephant Day 2014 and what we can do to get involved.
