On March 25, a panel of L.A. community scientists, conservationists and activists discussed Dr. Goodall's evolution to activism and how we can all make a difference for the second installment of A Closer Look at Becoming Jane at NHM.
"Every single one of us matters, every single one of us has a role to play, and every single one of us makes a difference every single day. "
Dr. Jane Goodall's famous quote reflects her shift from scientific research to community-driven conservation.
