Google celebrated Earth Day today with a Doodle that featured a special message Dr. Jane Goodall. The animated video details part of Goodall's story of how she fell in love with animals and one moment in particular during her research that illustrated to her the interconnectedness of nature. The Doodle was produced in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute, the global environment and wildlife conservation organization founded by the famed ethologist.

"Out in the rainforest, you learn how everything is interconnected and each little species, even though it may seem insignificant, has a role to play in their tapestry of life," she says in the video.  "What better day than Earth Day to really make a determined effort to live lives in better harmony with nature. Every single individual matters, every single individual makes some kind of impact on the planet every single day, and we have a choice as to what kind of difference we are going to make."

As Google notes, Earth Day began in 1970 as a day to show how everyone can work together to create a more sustainable future. Goodall began her famed work studying chimpanzees when she was just 26, and now, travels the world to raise awareness of the threats facing chimpanzees and the environment in general.
