Yesterday, we featured, Dr. Penny Patterson”s father, Dr. Cecil Patterson, in the KokoPix PhotoBlog. Today, we just wanted to emphasize how closely aligned they are on the matter of great ape conservation. Both Pattersons seem to agree that the future of great apes (including humans) depends on the willingness of humans to wake up to the reality that we are not the only conscious beings on the planet, and that the “purpose” of other (non-human) beings is not ours alone to decide. The challenge then is for “humans” to become more conscious (not gorillas). If you don”t believe that Dr. C. and Dr. P. are in alignment on this, just check out their body language in this photo.
