Yesterday was #LoveYourPetDay, and as some of you may know, my earliest understanding of the complexities of the personalities of animals came from my relationship with my dearest companions, my dogs!

What do you learn from your pets?

"Without access to the USDA APHIS database, which includes records of violations of the animal welfare act, citizens cannot readily determine how entities like zoos and dog breeders — with which they may do business — treat animals in their care." - Dr. Goodall

Today is a very special day. 26 years ago, a group of students in Tanzania believed they could work together, creating small changes, which would ultimately add up to a world of change. Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Program was born, and now in nearly 100 countries, it is growing and holding strong, getting young people mobilized on everything from little projects to huge undertakings, making...

Dr. Goodall believes many people are 'divorced from nature,' but we can always find our way back.

"Many people seem to view nature as something to be controlled, managed, and used for profit – that they are outside of nature, masters of it if you like...Moreover, we need to connect to nature for our spiritual health."

This is Your Story: Hope in Action

You all may know of my dear love for chimpanzees, but it was my childhood dog, Rusty, who first taught me that animals and people are so similar - loving, compassionate, intelligent and full of individual personality.

My love for dogs continues, and it is important to talk about the intriguing work of trained shelter dogs protecting elephants and rhinos in Africa, as I got to in this...

Where Wildlife Are in Danger, There Exists a Thin Green Line

I was given this amazing wood sculpture by a refugee named Majaliwa Maulid from the Democratic Republic of the Congo - a kind and creative soul who carves peace doves, and is a part of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Program. He was brought to the refugee camp at the age of two, after his mother was killed by rebels while preparing food for the family.

Majaliwa lives in the camp with just his...

We have to each decide what difference we want to make for each other and all living things....
