A new feature of the Global Dharma pages is coverage of a famous vegetarian or vegan in each issue. The July issue briefly shares the life and times of Jane Goodall, famous for her early research on chimpanzees. Late in her career she discovered the horrors of factory farming and became a vegetarian. At the age of 78, she is going strong as the leader in a movement to teach and engage youth in fixing earth’s environmental problems. She shows it’s never too late to keep on working for dharma.
