Humans share about 99 percent of our DNA structure with chimpanzees, a fact that, according to Jane Goodall, we often forget at our own peril. In this edited transcript, the world-renowned primatologist focuses on two burgeoning problems rapidly depleting wildlife in Africa: the bushmeat trade and deforestation. Goodall's institute combats deforestation by combining community development, health care education, and natural resource management in integrated programs. Such integration, says Goodall, helps "people understand that as the environment is destroyed, so their own lives become increasingly hard and difficult."
