By Jane Goodall (Author), Marc Bekoff (Author)


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.
