Dr. Jane Goodall shares her thoughts for World Animal Day 2020. This year marks 60 continuous years of research in Gombe, Tanzania, where Jane first unlocked the mysterious world of wild chimpanzees. This research and her findings helped redefine our relationship to the rest of the animal kingdom.

The difference is in degree, not in kind.” We are a part of the animal world, not separate, and it’s our responsbility to respect and protect the natural world.
