Renowned naturalist Jane Goodall has a message about coronavirus. She sent a video message to all affected by the coronavirus saying, “It is a truly terrible time you are going through. My heart is with all who are sick, and all who have lost loved ones. I hope and pray that the nightmare will soon be over.”

Jane’s words also contained a message about the animal kingdom. “I also pray the nightmare may end for the wild animals who are captured and kept in horrible conditions for food or because some people believe that various animal parts can be used to cure disease or give people strength and virility.”

She said that animals “have feelings just like us.” Goodall also urged humans to pay attention to the destruction of the earth and “places where animals live in order to get materials to build our homes, our cities and to make our own lives more comfortable.”
