JANE GOODALL: We must change our ways. We must drastically change our diets and move to plant-rich foods. For the sake of the animals, planet and the health of our children.

LOUISE BOYLE: Dr. Jane Goodall has said that “we are finished” if humanity does not learn lessons from the coronavirus pandemic. “If we do not do things differently, we are finished. We can’t go on very much longer like this,” she said, calling for an overhaul of our food systems and end to the destruction of natural habitats.

The renowned conservationist, 86, issued the warning at an online conference on Tuesday to address pandemics, wildlife and intensive animal farming hosted by campaigners Compassion in World Farming, where she spoke alongside two European Commissioners.

The panel looked at the risks of future pandemics caused by humanity’s encroachment on natural habitats of wild species and overexploitation of natural resources.

She said: “We have brought this on ourselves because of our absolute disrespect for animals and the environment. Our disrespect for wild animals and our disrespect for farmed animals has created this situation where disease can spill over to infect human beings”…

“We have come to a turning point in our relationship with the natural world,” she said. “One of the lessons learnt from this crisis is that we must change our ways. Scientists warn that to avoid future crises, we must drastically change our diets and move to plant-rich foods. For the sake of the animals, planet and the health of our children”. SOURCE…
