Good afternoon, good evening, whatever. We can go, jambo, guten Abend, bonsoir, but we can also ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. That is the call that chimpanzees make before they go to sleep in the evening. You hear it going from one side of the valley to the other, from one group of nests to the next.

Hope. That s the question I get asked as I m going around the world: Jane, you ve seen so many terrible things, you ve seen your chimpanzees decrease in number from about one million, at the turn of the century, to no more than 655,555 now, and the same with so many other animals. Forests disappearing, deserts where once there was forest. Do you really have hope? Well, yes. You can t come to a conference like TED and not have hope, can you? And of course, there s hope. One is this amazing human brain.
So it wasn t surprising to me that as I was traveling around the world I met so many people who seemed to have lost hope. We seem to have lost wisdom, the wisdom of the indigenous people. I asked a question. Why? Well, do you think there could be some kind of disconnect between this extraordinarily clever brain, the kind of brain that the TED technologies exemplify, and the human heart? Talking about it in the non-scientific term, in terms of love and compassion. Is there some disconnect? And these people, when I talk to them, basically they were either depressed or apathetic, or bitter and angry. And they said more or less the same thing, We feel this way because we feel you ve compromised our future and there s nothing we can do about it.
Well, if you look in textbooks today that deal with human evolution, you very often find people speculating about how early humans may have behaved, based on the behavior of chimpanzees. They are more like us than any other living creature, and we ve heard about that during this TED Conference. So it remains for me to comment on the ways in which chimpanzees are so like us, in certain aspects of their behavior.

All around the world climates are mixed up. And it s the poor people who are affected worse. It s Africa that already is affected. In many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, the droughts are so much worse. And when the rain does come, it so often leads to flooding and added distress, and the cycle of poverty and hunger and disease. And the numbers of people living in an area that the land cannot support, who are too poor to buy food, who can t move away because the whole land is degraded. And so you get desertification — creeping, creeping, creeping — as the last of the trees are cut down. And this kind of thing is not just in Africa. It s all over the world.
Today, we are developing what we call the Greater Gombe Ecosystem. This is an area way outside the National Park, stretching out into all these very degraded lands. And as these villages have a better standard of life, they are actually agreeing to put between 65 percent and 75 percent of their land in the highlands aside, so that once again, as the trees grow back, the chimpanzees will have leafy corridors through which they can travel to interact — as they must for genetic viability — with other remnant groups outside the National Park. So TACARE is a success. We re replicating it in other parts of Africa, around other wilderness areas which are faced with extreme population pressure.
And what s happened? I mean, the question here is, here we are, arguably the most intelligent being that s ever walked planet Earth, with this extraordinary brain, capable of the kind of technology that is so well illustrated by these TED Conferences, and yet we re destroying the only home we have. The indigenous people around the world, before they made a major decision, used to sit around and ask themselves, How does this decision affect our people seven generations ahead? Today, major decisions — and I m not particularly talking about Africa here, but the developed world — major decisions involving millions of dollars, and millions of people, are often based on, How will this affect the next shareholders meeting? And these decisions affect Africa.
