A few weeks ago, the famous British ethologist Jane Goodall called for a greener economy. This Saturday April 3, the one who dedicated her life to the great primates will celebrate her 87 years.
It forever changed the way we look at chimpanzees. Jane Goodall, British ethologist, has helped develop human knowledge of large primates. By observing them first, then gradually, getting closer until you can embrace them. “Jane in the 60s was one of the first to demonstrate that the border that we put between us and animals is much thinner than what we imagine”, explains Cyril Dion, author-director who dedicates a sequence to him in his next film, “Animal”.
After a huge career that began very early in Kenya, Jane Goodall has become a source of inspiration for many. Through her foundation, Jane Goodall Institute, she tries to convey ecological messages: “You have to be careful about everything you buy, where it comes from, how it’s made, what impact it has on the environment and has it harmed animals.” The ball is now in the human court.
