What can we do this year to make a difference? Start by heeding some sage advice from Dr. Jane Goodall – this month’s Green Hero.
What every person can do is spend a little bit of time every day learning about and thinking about the consequences of all the little choices we make each day. What we buy. What we wear. What we eat. How we get from A to B. How we interact with other people. How we interact with animals and the environment. If we all start making little changes the cumulative effect will be the kind of thing we need to change the world and put it back on track.
You can watch the webisode where she speaks these words or catch the entire Green Heroes TV episode featuring Dr. Goodall along with other animal champions including Dolphin Protector Ric O’Barry, Shark enthusiast Rob Stewart, and Papa Goose, Richard Lishman on Amazon Prime
Also as a special treat this month- the multi-award winning documentary National Geographic documentary about Jane Goodall’s life with the chimps airs on TVO Monday, January 7 at 9 p.m. as part of their Biography Mondays series. The documentary also gives a seldom seen look at footage filmed by Dutch wildlife photographer Hugo van Lawick who later became Jane’s husband. It’s an intimate portrait of their life and love that will capture your heart.
Now that’s a great way to start the New Year! Happy 2019 to all our Green Heroes and their many fans and supporters. May 2019 bring a greener and cleaner future for all and remember:
Everyone of us makes a difference every single day.Dr. Jane Goodall
