"Hello everyone dr. Just honor to be in your presence. Thank you so much for taking time. Today i want to begin with your journey. Your professional journey sixteen years ago heading to go main study chimpanzees not as credential scientists but as a woman who had attended schools because secretary my goal was to go to africa live with wild animals and write books about them. But i didn't have money and the family didn't have money and girls didn't do that sort of thing. Everybody knows that may so. I did a secretarial course because i had to get money well we waited to the opportunity to go to africa. I never wanted to be a secretary. That's all. I wanted to say because so many people think that that was going to be my job in life. Napa net hot naphtha. And i think that that is. I know many women so relatable that we have to do things in that period in order to survive i think there are a lot of women during this pandemic who are going through that reality that they're taking a job or whatever it is they can sustain themselves just to span their family and i think a lot about what it is going to be like on the other side of this whenever we got to the other side of this women we already know from. Professional studies often join apply for positions. Unless they feel that they have absolutely every single qualification. How did you then. Hopefully that belief in yourself where even if someone said well. You don't have everything we're looking for. You thought yourself. I'm ready and i'm prepared. Well no you know when. I went out africa. Who's going to stay with. A schoolfriend was no qualifications. Unfortunately i how about the late. Dr louis leakey paleontologists been looking for someone to study chimpanzees. I would have studied any animal under the sun. I had no aspiration to become a scientist. I wanted to live without animals and write books about them. So that's how it began. Fortunately leaky felt that women might be better in the field. You have to realize back then. It was nobody out there studying anything it was just i think three studies going on to men in south africa and one in uganda. So it was an absolutely uncharted final so there was no protocol to follow. And i was just so lucky. That leaky one wanted a woman because seatbelt might be patient and two. I wanted somebody who had not been of us right from the people studying animals in captivity. They were very reductionist. Animals were just things and he didn't want somebody who's mind had been bias in that direction so it was competing amazing. I save up money. Walk away just to get the money. And he and the dream comes true. It wasn't that amazed is amazing and yet it's not as though you'd never ran up against any form of resistance. There's a story of Before about being in the labs in you would refer to chimps by their gender would say she ne- he en- very often other scientists believe that they shouldn't be gender that they were just day. And you would go. And i love this form of resistance which is nice idea just scratching it out and putting it back exactly as you had intended. I think there's a lesson in there for all of us. That was one of the scientific papers i did. I was cambridge by them. And this was the prestigious magazine nature. And i was shocked to find a she and bay crossed out. And it's some witches put. And i think lease gibson may the respectfulness event gender which is very very obvious chimpanzees. Wanna talk a little bit about covid because it is the romans we are all living. You have said we've brought this upon ourselves and by that i mean is that for a very long time. We have been absolutely disrespecting the natural world and disrespecting animals and as we destroy forest animals have pushed in close contact with people opportunity for bacteria to jump from animal to a pass where it may start a new disease The animals we eat them. Way destroyed homes way traffic them sending them to wildlife meat markets and sold for meat for medicine and also the huge trade in exotic animals pence and here again perfect opportunities in this case the covid virus which almost certainly began in a wildlife market in china meant. We haven't to forget the other hara. Animals of those are factory farms and made to provide wonderful opportunities for disease a so-called zoonotic diseases where bacteria jumps from an animal to human this global crisis one hopes given the number of institutions systems. It has exposed as being problematic insufficient weather that is child care health care system that is built for profit at is trying to execute a public health strategy whether that is as you're talking about deforestation and degradation of our environment in the way that that has pushed some of these viruses forward. Where's the opportunity to now. That people are ringing the alarm. Now that people are paying attention. How can we do better. Well i think that the one silver lining up this terrible pandemic which has caused my suffering is that more and more people are understanding that we have in many ways brought this on our cells that is desperately important that somehow we create a new more respectful relationship with animals a nature. And you know the thing is that people seem to think that we can separate ourselves from nature. We conned with politics. The natural world we depend on it approved for clothing shelter. Just about everything. Clean wartime occc now and we're destroying us to talk. Carol and this crazy notion that you can have unlimited economic development on a planet with finite natural resources and a growing human population and a growing population of livestock. Right now the seven point eight billion of us on the planet approximately they estimate near a ten billion by twenty fifty so some of the natural resources already.
