On April 1, 2003, Senator Jon Corzine hosted a press conference in the U.S. Senate Dirksen Office Building in Washington, D.C., to announce that he would be the new Senate sponsor of the Act to Save America's Forests.
Joining him was Dr. Jane Goodall, world famous biologist, and pioneering chimpanzee researcher. Dr. Goodall is founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, which carries out many programs to protect chimpanzees and other primates around the world, and the forests where they live. Dr. Goodall made a speech about the problems of world-wide deforestation, including at the famous Gombe Forest in Africa, where Dr. Goodall lived for many years studying the chimpanzees. Dr. Goodall praised the Act to Save America's Forests for protecting the last remaining Ancient Forests and roadless forests, and for promoting ecologically sustainable logging. Also speaking on behalf of the Act were Carl Ross, Dennis Schvejda, and Brent Blackwelder.
Following the press conference, Dr. Goodall gave a 20 minute lecture about her work, and the Jane Goodall Institute projects, including Roots and Shoots, whose mission is to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action and make the world a better place for animals, the environment, and the human community.
