  • Primatologist Jane Goodall: Intensive Farms Should Be Closed, Not Just Wet Markets (Video)

Jane Goodall is the world’s foremost primatologist and has pretty much invented research on chimpanzees on her own. British Jane Goodall is now 86 years old. She normally travels the world for her Jane Goodall Institute, but now she is glued to her home in England like everyone else.  She returns to the subject of our responsibilities as a human species with respect to the spread of the Coronavirus.

During a television interview in the Dutch television program “Buitenhof”, she made it clear that the role of intensive farming and exploitation of all animals should be at the center of world discussion to cope with future epidemics or pandemics.

Goodall explains that only a small part of wet markets sells wild animals, most of these markets are similar to the farmers’ markets that we also find in the United States and America. These are the places where people go to buy fresh food at a reasonable price. What is being asked and on which internationally we are focusing is to close the markets that sell wild animals but we should also apply this provision to intensive livestock farms where we find pigs, chickens, cows, because some of the diseases of the past they are the consequence of these horrible activities.
