SRI Fellow Wendee Nicole interviewed Jane Goodall for AnimalPlanet for her 80th birthday. The piece highlights Jane Goodall’s achievements and touches on how empowering locals to take charge of their environment can help conserve tropical forests.
Wendee Nicole: You are on the road 300 days a year. You’re turning 80. Do you plan to slow down?
Jane: The longer I live, the closer I get to when I’ll die, whenever that is, and there’s so much left to do. How much longer I can do it depends on my body, but as long as I can do it, I’ll do it.
