Jane Goodall talked about her book Hope for Animals and Their World: How Endangered Species Are Being Rescued from the Brink (Grand Central Publishing; September 2, 2009). Ms. Goodall opened her talk with the call of a chimpanzee. During the talk, Ms. Goodall described several people around the world who were successfully saving endangered species. A poster of a condor was displayed. She also talked about the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots network, which helps young people identify problems in their communities and take steps to solve them. Children from the local Washington chapter, accompanied by music, flew a giant peace dove puppet made from recycled sheets, promoting the United Nations International Day of Peace. She also responded to questions from members of the audience following her remarks.
This event on September 9, 2009, in Georgetown University’s Gaston Hall was co-sponsored by 10 university and student groups.
Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, is the author of many books, including In the Shadow of Man; Reason for Hope; and The Chimpanzees I Love. close
