Jane Goodall Talks About Her Love of Animals and the Strength of Her Beliefs in a Lost 2002 Interview

On a recent episode of The Experimenters, an animated interview series from the creators of Blank on Blank (previously), the incredible Jane Goodall discusses her love of animals, how the late Louis Leakey changed her life, and the strength of her beliefs in a 2002 interview with Science Friday host Ira Flatow.

I think I’d like to be remembered as someone who really helped people to have a little humility and realize that we are part of the animal kingdom not separated from it. When I do go back to Gombe it’s to be in that timeless world where it’s soft and where life is entwined and you actually see the pattern of nature. I always feel this great spiritual power which I believe is around.
