Over the hump… the animal that survived against all odds.
Dr Jane Goodall and John Hare tell Camilla Tominey a cautionary tale of why we shouldn’t tinker with nature, “we will suffer a worse pandemic if we don’t stop destroying animal habitats”.
There is still hope, though. Praising Hare’s work, Dr Goodall says:
The one good thing today is the number of people who are passionate about particular species. If it wasn’t for people like that, many other animals who still cling on, sometimes barely, would be gone. That’s the hope, that there’s enough people to care about all these different creatures to keep a semblance of the original biodiversity alive.
