Jane’s Letter on Iranian Amnesty


To Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei,

I am writing to beg for amnesty for the guardians of Iran’s nature and that they may be given the gift of freedom:

Taher Ghadirian
Sam Rajabi
Houman Jowkar
Niloufar Bayani
Sepideh Kashani
Amirhossein Khaleghi
Morad Tahbaz

All the above are people who have done much for Iran’s future.

Yours Sincerely,
Jane Goodall Ph.D., DBE
Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute
UN Messenger of Peace

About Author

Jane Goodall is a passionate road warrior, traveling nearly 300 days each year on a worldwide speaking tour to raise awareness, inspire change, and encourage each of us to do our part in making the world a better place. Jane's love for animals started at a young age and in July of 1960, at the age of 26, she followed her dreams and traveled from England to what is now Tanzania, to bravely enter the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars, but with her unyielding patience and optimism, she won the trust of the Gombe chimpanzees, and opened a window into their lives for all to see. Jane's studies has taught humanity one of the most important lessons - that we humans are not the only beings on this planet with personalities, minds capable of thinking and above all, emotions. Her findings shook the scientific community and made us re-evaluate what it means to be human.
