Renowned primatologist Jane Goodall continues to care deeply about primates -- but also about people, plants and the entire planet. Although she admits she often exhausts herself, the 79-year-old conservationist just can't give up.
"I'm hopeful in that I know we can change direction if we all jump in. I know that we will never even try if we lose hope," she said.
Goodall joined Jian in April to reflect on how poverty prevents progress, why conservationists must reject colonialist attitudes, and why Sudbury, Ontario is a beacon.
She also explains why keeping exotic pets, like the famed Ikea monkey, is a very troubling trend.
