Jane's Statement on PETA's 98% Human Video
After seeing this animated video by PETA, Dr. Goodall lends her voice on why using chimpanzees in entertainment or keeping them as pets is damaging to their personalities and overall well-being.
"I first saw this extraordinarily powerful PSA on the big screen. The effect was overwhelming. We, at JGI, have been fighting to ban the use of chimpanzees in entertainment for years, as have a number of other animal welfare groups . This short sequence will go a long way to helping us to achieve our goal. Congratulations to PETA for a remarkable contribution.”
