“Every single one of us makes an impact on the planet every single day, and we get to choose what sort of impact that is,” she said.
Goodall went on to explain that she hopes the younger generation will recognize the effects of their behavior: “Just remember, we’re part of this amazing animal kingdom. Other animals like us can feel happy or sad. Other animals like us can suffer—mentally as well as physically. And just give pause to think about the abuse that we encounter as we travel around. But It’s not only that we abuse other animals: We also abuse other human beings. And we also abuse mother nature.”
