Renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall came to UW-Madison last week. Speaking at Memorial Union, Dr. Goodall shared her story and encouraged action for the future of our environment.
Goodall was the first ethologist to see the animals fashioning tools and eating meat. Her findings challenged conventional notions about primates and provided evidence for the evolutionary relationship between humans and chimpanzees.
And she’s been a wildlife protector and advocate for restoring damaged habitats since the mid 1980s. Her latest book, “The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times,” chronicles her life’s work and her optimism that humankind will come together to protect the environment.
Perpetual Notion Machine host Taylor Woelfel headed down to the event on Sunday, March 26. In tonight’s episode, Woelfel delves deep into Dr. Goodall’s philosophy and plays some clips from the event.
