Roots & Shoots
Jane visited Belgium last week as part of her Gombe 50 tour of Europe. While there she made a very special visit to the European Parliament (EP) in Brussels. The European Parliament is the directly elected parliamentary institution of the European Union, and is the second largest democratic electorate in the world with 736 officials serving as members of the Parliament.
At a time when many animal species are at a crossroads, around the globe, passionate individuals and groups are dedicating themselves to ensuring a hopeful future for species threatened with extinction. Their stories are the ones that Dr. Jane tells in her most recent book, Hope for Animals and Their World.
