9780060556112: The Ten Trusts: What We Must Do to Care for The Animals We Love

Now in paperback–the ten things we must do to ensure a safe and peaceful world, from legendary environmentalist Jane Goodall and brilliant animal behaviorist, Marc Bekoff.

Combining her life's work living among the chimpanzees with her spiritual perspective on the relationship between humans and animals, legendary behavioral scientist Jane Goodall sets forth ten trusts that we as humans have as custodians of the planet:

1. Respect all life

2. Live as part of the Animal Kingdom

3. Educate our children to respect animals

4. Treat animals as you would like to be treated

5. Be a steward

6. Value the sounds of nature and help preserve them

7. Do not harm life in order to learn about it

8. Have the courage of your convictions

9. Act knowing that your actions make a difference

10. Act knowing that you are not alone.

Filled with inspirational stories, The Ten Trusts provides lessons Jane Goodall has learned from a lifetime of experience, with the warmth and emotion her readers have come to expect from her. Marc Bekoff, cofounder of the Roots and Shoots program with Jane, also contributes his profound insights and research, which Jane has come to rely on. Together, they share their hope and vision for humanity and all the earth's creatures, distilled into ten eloquent spiritual lessons. Within these ten trusts, Goodall reveals how we can gain true enlightenment by living in harmony with the animal kingdom and honoring the interconnection between all species.

About the Author:

Jane Goodall is one of the world's leading conservationists. The author of many books, including the New York Times bestseller, Reason for Hope, she is renowned for her work with the chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania, as well as for her extensive worldwide lecturing on conservation and preservation of all species.



Marc Bekoff is professor of biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is the author of many books, including Minding Animals: Awareness, Emotions and Heart, and is a former Guggenheim Fellow and a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society. Bekoff is also regional coordinator for Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program, which promotes environmental awareness and community involvement of young people, senior citizens, and prisoners in over seventy countries through education and hands-on activities.

From Booklist:

Scientist Goodall's profound compassion and respect for life have induced her to become a tireless activist on behalf of animals, over whom humans hold the power of life and death. Here she teams up with ethologist Bekoff, author of Minding Animals [BKL Ap 1 02], to present a riveting treatise on how to "become better and more compassionate inhabitants of Earth" by embracing 10 "trusts" that will put a stop to animal abuse, environmental destruction, and concomitant human suffering. In deeply moving true-life stories of love and altruism involving various creatures from dogs to a parrot, donkey, and pot-bellied pig, matched by indelible accounts of the healing properties of mutually affectionate human-animal relationships, these two lucid scientists declare once and for all that animals do, as any close observer will attest, possess emotions and intelligence; they do feel pain. This is prelude to harrowing descriptions of how these sentient, most likely sapient beings are routinely tortured in the service of science, medicine, agriculture, cosmetics, and entertainment. Goodall and Bekoff's mission is not to horrify but to inspire. Determinedly optimistic, they insist that every effort to eradicate these crimes against animals, no matter how modest, from buying free-range eggs to supporting animal rights groups, proves that we can still become "wise stewards of life on Earth." An accessible, compelling, and important expose. Donna Seaman
