Goodall Offers Hope in Kenyan Lecture

Goodall Offers Hope in Kenyan Lecture

28th Jan 2013 Events, Press Releases

Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) ambassador Dr. Jane Goodall said that the “indomitable human spirit” gave her reason for hope, but warned that mankind’s greed still threatens that natural world in a rare Kenyan lecture appearance at the National Museums of Kenya on January 26.

A sell-out crowd filled the museum’s Main Gallery to hear Goodall, who has studied chimpanzees in Tanzania for more than 50 years, but increasingly speaks on issues of global significance.

Goodall’s “Reason for Hope” lecture – taken from her 1998 book of the same name – referenced both the compassionate and caring side of chimpanzees, but also their dark and violent side. “In the end, we must admit they are very much like us,” she said.

Dr. Oz Responds to GRASP Challenge

Popular television host Dr. Mehmet Oz responded to concerns expressed by the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) and others regarding red fruit palm oil today by posting an on-line blog that specifically addresses the threat unsustainable production poses to great apes and their habitat in Africa and Asia.

Writing in “The Oz Blog,” the host of the daily syndicated “The Dr. Oz Show” warned that “permitting the clearing of thousands of acres of rainforests to make room for palm oil farms does endanger the environment along with the orangutans that live there.”

Added Oz: “Careless decisions will lead to the destruction of rainforests, the decimation of wildlife, and the exploitation of indigenous peoples.”
