I recently read Jane Goodall's Reason for Hope, and I love her optimism so much! She got me energized to begin seriously thinking about and taking steps toward conservation. Switching to cloth wipes is a tiny, tiny step--I'm still using disposable diapers! But I'm celebrating anyway and working on more: reducing plastic waste, cutting back on meat consumption, and researching further household sustainability practices. #sustainableliving#conservation#babysteps#janegoodall

🌿El aceite de palma es un derivado del fruto de la palma aceitera africana (Elaeis guineensis). De este fruto se obtienen dos tipos de aceite: el de palma propiamente dicho, obtenido a partir de la pulpa del fruto, y el de palmiste, a partir de la semilla del fruto.
Está presente en alimentos (repostería, chocolates, cereales, precocinados, margarinas, etc.), productos de higiene personal (champús, cosméticos, pasta de dientes, etc.) y de limpieza (limpiadores, detergentes, etc.). Se calcula que cada ciudadano adulto consume una media anual de 2 kg de aceite de palma.
Actualmente un tercio de las especies de mamíferos de Indonesia están en peligro crítico debido al desarrollo insostenible de los cultivos que están sustituyendo sus hábitats.
Si el ritmo de deforestación continúa, los orangutanes podrían extinguirse en la naturaleza en los próximos 10 años, y los tigres de Sumatra en menos de 3 años.

When I was in second grade, we had to write a biographical report and then give a presentation as that person. I chose Jane Goodall and was absolutely fascinated by her. @basicbertrand just got us free tickets to go see her at URI next month! I cannot wait! #fbf#janegoodall
David Greybeard ❤️ the first chimpanzee to let Jane Goodall observe him, paving the way for her landmark research, which showed scientists that humans aren’t the only ones who can make tools. Thanks to naturalists, biologists and to every scientist for expanding our understanding of this crazy beautiful planet, increasing our knowledge and for keeping us fascinated. @janegoodallau @janegoodallinst @nationalscienceweek
"When I first saw this painting, Spirit of the Forest, I was silent; completely in awe. I was back in those days when I could spend hours observing and learning from chimpanzees like Fifi and infant Flirt, whose very essence is depicted here. It captures the magic of the rain forest and is symbolic of all that is most meaningful in my life. I hope for anyone who sees this painting that it too will open a window into this wonderful world." – Dr. Jane Goodall

🐚 THIS IS NOT A FEMINIST BLOG POST FYI 🐚
Just before you run away 😉
But I was thinking about my level of enjoyment of films and books that DON'T have a lead female character in them. Then I did a little exploring - read my blog to see what I found (link in bio)
THEN I saw this (second photo) little snippet in @psychologiesmagazine today a few hours after I had written my blog... Synchronicity 💫
Op welk gesigneerd boek ben je trots? Deze van Jane Goodall 😍 Jane is stoer en lief tegelijkertijd, een krachtige combinatie. Zoals zij kan praten en schrijven over respect voor dieren en de natuur 🙏🏻🐒🐾 #bbbookstagram#signhereplease#janegoodall#monkey

I look very much forward to be a part of the "Asia for Animals" conference in December at Jane Goodall institute, Kathmandu. I will also visit India on this occasion for a couple of days.
During my visits I would like to support local shelters and animal welfare workers with much needed support.
Every small donation will make a difference! Thank you for standing beside the animals, their carers and me. See link in bio to learn more about my mission and to donate or write the following in your browser:
Lest I forget, I wanted to show you this picture of a shine through #heart#leave that I made in the course of yesterday's video tutorial for the little #magic#light . Isn't it #amazing ? I think I mentioned, that I'm currently reading/listening to "Seeds of hope" by Jane Goodall #janegoodall A wonderful book about the amazing world of #plants ❤️❤️❤️
"Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice" - original 9x12 portrait painting of Annie. .
Annie has all the personality qualities that make up a truly lovely individual. She is adventurous, kind, loving and quiet, with just a touch of mischievous up-and-comer.
We don't know a lot about Annie's infancy. She was reportedly captured from the wild to be used in research and it's estimated that she was born in 1974. She was used in hepatitis vaccine research and also used as a breeder. Annie was merely seven years old when she was forced to breed. For nearly two years, she was forced to breed with at least seven different males After spending over a decade at a research center, she was (which became the Coulston Foundation), she finally was shipped back to a place called Buckshire in late 1996. For the next 12 years, she stayed at Buckshire, never getting to be a mother to her babies, never getting to make true friends and never getting to really be a chimpanzee. In June 2008, she was rescued by Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest and retired to live with the Cle Elum Seven, where she has had access to sun over her head and grass under her feet for probably the first time since she was captured from Africa.
"Solitary No More"- 9x12 original portrait painting of Negra. .
Born 1973 in the wild
Negra began her life in the forests of Africa and was captured as an infant. The majority of her 30+ years have been spent in biomedical research laboratories. She was used in hepatitis vaccine research and as a "breeder." She is a strong individual with a unique personality and has been called the QUEEN of the Cle Elum Seven chimpanzees. Negra enjoys the sheets and blankets that are provided to her at the sanctuary and she has a nightly ritual of sitting up on a ledge and completely covering herself with a blanket. She stays like this for a few minutes, then peeks her face out so that the blanket is wrapped around her body and head like a hooded poncho.
The lab technicians took blood from Negra regularly, knocking her down each time. They took liver biopsies, which meant she had to undergo surgery. They tested her for hepatitis C on June 2, 1987. Negra had been housed in isolation in Cage #28 for over a year and a half due to incorrect blood work. At this point, they transferred her back to the main chimp colony.
Even after living in isolation, undergoing tests, and having babies taken from her, the researchers still took more from her. In early January 1992, they used her in a study that involved injecting a serum near her lymph nodes in her left leg. By March, they had done this five times, and prepped Negra for surgery to remove the nodes. As if that weren't enough, just a couple months later, Negra was transferred again to another breeding pair.
Cage #28 is no longer Negra's home. Now her home is in Cle Elum, Washinginton, where she's really finding her place under the sun. With time, she's explored more and spent more time outside, and some days she's hard to find! Seeing Negra, the honorary Queen of Chimp Sanctuary Northwest (CSNW), able to relax and enjoy her home fills everyone around her with joy. She is the epitome of CSNW's philosophy: Hope. Love. Home... Sanctuary.
