Jane Goodall is a public speaker, advocate, and author. She travels around 300 days every year and spreads the message of hope and betterment to make this world a better place for everyone living in it.
The Jane Goodall Institute tries to protect chimpanzees and conserve the world of nature. As humans, we have wreaked havoc on the natural world. Now, it’s time to extend our kindness and start building a better world for the animal kingdom out there. As per the website, in 1900, around 1 million chimpanzees were living in the wild. Now, there are only around 340,000. We should do everything to protect our most near and dear species. As per the IUCN Red List, they are endangered.
