I think all of us would like to aspire to do all that Jane has done and make the sacrifices she has made. She is truly an animal hero!

Good Old Jane she is one of the most astonishing women on this planet!
She has done so much for the animals in Africa not only the apes!
She definitely deserves a nobel price for this IDEA! More than Al Gore for his Global warming swindle!

"I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it should be abolished. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil."
~Dr. Charles Mayo, Founder of the Mayo Clinic

I agree with Hans: even the idea itself is worth a prize!
But what would be even better is if Jane Goodall would be sucessful.
All power to her elbow!

Fantastic idea indeed!
I would like to assure you that WWF firmly believes that non-animal
testing methods should be used whenever possible to providechemical safety and that the welfare of laboratory animals must be a
central concern of chemical testing Programmes. In Europe, WWF has
worked alongside animal welfare organisations to advocate significantly
increased government funding of alternatives to animal tests.
The Nobel price for this issue would be a great inspiration!
