In the introduction, Goodall writes:
"[E]vidence is mounting of a sixth extinction--this time caused by human actions. To keep up my spirits when I was tired and things seemed extra-bleak, I made a collection of what I call my 'symbols of hope.'"
One of her symbols is a feather from a California condor, a species which was rescued from extinction.

I'd say one of my symbols of hope is the hummingbird.
