Episode 10 with John Scanlon – Hope is Ending
Wildlife Crime

In this fireside chat, Dr. Jane Goodall is joined by
John Scanlon, who is CEO of Elephant Protection Initiative Foundation and chair
of the Global Initiative to End Wildlife Crime, of which the Jane Goodall
Institute Global is a champion. Recently John served as Special Envoy for
African Parks and was the Secretary General of the Convention on International
Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. John has dedicated his
life to ensuring the safety and conservation of countless species of plants and
animals. John and Jane have an insightful and moving conversation about the
dire need to more effectively protect wildlife against criminal activities by
joining forces beyond national borders, as well as work with local communities.
For Jane’s part, she promotes education through Roots & Shoots youth
programs and JGI’s Triangle Approach in countries like the Republic of the
Congo, including work with law enforcement and sanctuaries, as well as the
ForeverWild campaign. John, for the sake of future generations, finds hope in
fighting for a better, more equitable world for all species. “We can’t, in good
conscience, leave the next generation with the system that we’re living with
today when we know that it’s not fit for purpose.”

At the End of the Rainbow: Stay to the end of the episode to hear a never-before-aired clip of Dr. Goodall’s speech for Interpol in 2020, urging communities, countries and citizens around the world to unite to end the devastating trade of vulnerable wildlife.
