Gene Pool: how you can help

Dear Friend,

I once asked Jane Goodall how I could help. She encouraged me, in so many words, to look within and get creative about it. I pass along her words of wisdom. There is much to do and your help is needed. As Evelyn in The Monkey Bible says, “Tiny steps, she told herself. Take tiny steps. Even if one’s shoes are not glamorous, even if the steps are not much, they are a start, and after a while the steps may well add up.” Below are some suggestions. Let’s work together and make it happen!

Best wishes,
Mark
