When Dr. Jane Goodall began her now world-famous work with chimpanzees and their conservation, she saw what no one else had been able to see ... that animals, humans and the environment are all interconnected, and when one suffers, we all suffer. Since then, Dr. Jane Goodall has dedicated her entire life to securing a brighter future for our world. She is a source of inspiration to those who value conservation, peace and the protection of all of earth’s creatures.
I would like to send my heartfelt birthday wishes to you on this special day. Your message of peace and hope has touched countless lives and minds, inspiring people across the globe to take action to make our world a better place. This is true especially among young people, who through your Roots & Shoots program strive to make a positive difference in their communities.
Since you began your life-long journey to understand and conserve chimpanzees over five decades ago, you have remained a steadfast voice for Africa’s threatened great apes, amazing beings who are unable to speak up for themselves. Your spirit will live on in the hearts of your supporters for countless future generations, and along with them I say thank you and wish you a very happy birthday.
