Senator Murray Sinclair and Jane Goodall discuss protection of captive wild animals – Nov. 17, 2020
Jane Goodall, the noted primatologist, conservationist, and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, joins Manitoba Senator Murray Sinclair via videoconference for an announcement concerning a bill that Senator Sinclair plans to introduce in the upper chamber. The Jane Goodall Act aims to protect captive great apes, elephants and other wild animals in captivity. The bill would also ban the import of elephant ivory and hunting trophies into Canada. The proposed legislation builds on provisions passed in Senator Sinclair’s bill (S-203) in June 2019, which phased out whale and dolphin captivity for entertainment.
