Sample text

Throwing caution to the wind is a good thing to do from time to time.

This was the only time in my childhood I remember being really rude to an old lady. ’ When I first got to Gombe to study the chimps, somebody gave me two chickens that were meant to be eaten: a hen and a rooster. I cut the string that tied their legs together and they became good companions, eating many insects around the camp, including scorpions. I named them Hengist and Hildegard, and Hengist was a wonderful alarm clock. It was quite impossible to sleep through his predawn crowing. They were enchanting birds, each with a very distinctive personality.

You must have known it was dangerous. Everyone was telling you. ’ And that’s the message that I’ve seen in the eyes of so many abused, neglected animals whether they be chimpanzee orphans for sale in the African markets or chimpanzees looking out from their bleak sterile lab cages or under the frills of the circus. I’ve seen it in the eyes of chained elephants and dogs cast out on the streets, and in the eyes of animals imprisoned without hope in factory farms. If we see that look with our eyes and we feel it in our hearts, we have to jump in and try to help.
