Jane Goodall Knows Chimps — and People
We’re not so different. The 81-year-old primate expert says working with chimpanzees for years helped her understand another primate — humans — much better. While our hairy cousins share the human trait of shunning migrants from another territory like we sometimes do, chimps could teach us about sustainability, she says, as they don’t over-harvest fruit. Now, as a U.N. Messenger of Peace, she’s reminding people to collaborate to save the natural world before it’s too late — not just for the animals’ sake, but for ours as well.
