Дама Валери Джейн Моррис Гудолл — посол мира ООН, приматолог, этолог и антрополог из Великобритании. Дама-Командор ордена Британской империи.

Она широко известна благодаря своему более чем 45-летнему изучению социальной жизни шимпанзе в Национальном парке Гомбе-Стрим в Танзании и как основательница международного Института Джейн Гудолл.


„Каждый, кто старается улучшить жизнь животных, неминуемо подвергнется критике со стороны тех, кто считает, что подобные усилия тратятся неправильно в мире, где страдает человечество.“

„Величайшая опасность для нашего будущего – безразличие.“


„Миллионы людей не понимают, насколько тесно мы, люди, связаны с остальной частью животного мира. Они не осознают, что мы сами — животные. Вместо этого они живут в фальшивой реальности, где люди стоят на одной стороне непреодолимой пропасти и остальная часть животного мира — на другом.“

„What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.“

„The greatest danger to our future is apathy.“

„In what terms should we think of these beings, nonhuman yet possessing so very many human-like characteristics? How should we treat them? Surely we should treat them with the same consideration and kindness as we show to other humans; and as we recognize human rights, so too should we recognize the rights of the great apes? Yes.“

„You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.“

„We have the choice to use the gift of our life to make the world a better place--or not to bother“


„Only if we understand, can we care. Only if we care, we will help. Only if we help, we shall be saved.“ Jane Goodall: 40 Years at Gombe

„The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.“

„Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.“

„Michael Pollan likens consumer choices to pulling single threads out of a garment. We pull a thread from the garment when we refuse to purchase eggs or meat from birds who were raised in confinement, whose beaks were clipped so they could never once taste their natural diet of worms and insects. We pull out a thread when we refuse to bring home a hormone-fattened turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. We pull a thread when we refuse to buy meat or dairy products from cows who were never allowed to chew grass, or breathe fresh air, or feel the warm sun on their backs.
The more threads we pull, the more difficult it is for the industry to stay intact. You demand eggs and meat without hormones, and the industry will have to figure out how it can raise farm animals without them. Let the animals graze outside and it slows production. Eventually the whole thing will have to unravel.
If the factory farm does indeed unravel - and it must - then there is hope that we can, gradually, reverse the environmental damage it has caused. Once the animal feed operations have gone and livestock are once again able to graze, there will be a massive reduction in the agricultural chemicals currently used to grow grain for animals. And eventually, the horrendous contamination caused by animal waste can be cleaned up. None of this will be easy.
The hardest part of returning to a truly healthy environment may be changing the current totally unsustainable heavy-meat-eating culture of increasing numbers of people around the world. But we must try. We must make a start, one by one.“

„We have so far to go to realize our human potential for compassion, altruism, and love.“ Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating

„One thing I had learned from watching chimpanzees with their infants is that having a child should be fun.“

„Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.“

„A sense of calm came over me. More and more often I found myself thinking, "This is where I belong. This is what I came into this world to do.“
