Dr. Jane Goodall DBE, the Life Patron of the Wild Camel Protection Foundation has published a remarkable blog post on her Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) website. JGI works in over 28 countries all over the world, raising awareness among schoolchildren on all aspects of environmental degradation.
Its mission is to promote understanding and protection of great apes and their habitat and to build on the legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall, their founder, to inspire individual action by young people of all ages to help animals, other people and to protect the world we share. “We strive to respect, nourish and protect all living things; people, animals and the environment are all interconnected. We believe that knowledge leads to understanding, and that understanding will encourage us to take action. We believe that every individual has the ability to make a positive difference. We believe that flexibility and open-mindedness are essential to enable us to respond to a changing world.”
