Bali’s world renowned Green School has organized an entire weekend dedicated to conservation and sustainability featuring Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE as a special guest.
Dame Jane Goodall is a well-known and controversial primatologist, ethnologist, anthropologist and UN Messenger for Peace. Best known for her groundbreaking work on chimpanzees, she has spent five decades studying the behavior and social organization of wild chimpanzees and is an outspoken defender of Nonhuman Rights.
During her stay in Bali Goodall will deliver a private lecture and participate in a book signing for the recently published Seeds of Hope co-authored with Gail Hudson.
Seeds of Hope examine the central role played by trees and plants in nature. Originally scheduled for release in April 2013, Seeds of Hope was recalled for corrections after being panned by both the Washington Post and Wikipedia for plagiarism and inaccuracies. Goodall subsequently apologized, vowing her team would ensure proper attribution would be made in order not to interfere with books “crucial message.”
