Jane Goodall endorses the Endangered Species Foundation
The ESF team was delighted to receive the following endorsement from conservation's own godmother. Dame Jane Goodall has long been one of the world's greatest conservation advocates, and, no doubt, an inspiration to us all.
"The Endangered Species Foundation is working very hard to prevent any further extinctions in New Zealand, a place where so much has already been lost, and where nearly 4,000 species found nowhere else remain in some danger of extinction. I applaud the attention they give to all species - not just the large charismatic birds and mammals, but also the less well known species of invertebrates, fungi, lichens, lizards, plants, amphibians, and even seaweeds. Their endeavour to provide sustainable support to essential conservation programmes is particularly important in a world where resources for conservation are scarce and all too often are available only for too-short a time. I wish them, and the species they support, all the success they deserve in this innovative project.” Dame Jane Goodall
