Fox News sat down with renowned primatologist Jane Goodall to learn more about why she believes we live in a “better world” than we did 50 years ago. She spoke about how her life has been affected by the planet’s lessons of evolution, conservation and loss.
“It is often easy to think that we have done enough and that we have reached a point where we have learned something and we have dealt with the loss. However, you cannot be so sure…not only of our culture but of our surroundings,” she told Fox News.
She continued, “It is not enough to look at the destruction and the continuation. There is not just one change, there is a continuous flow of lessons.”
That extends to her belief in the future of humanity.
“Yes we have to preserve and protect our world – this is our home. However, our future cannot rest on the here and now,” she said. “Our future lies in ourselves and with one another.”
Goodall told us about how “help and guidance” from family and from the community has helped her achieve her goals.
