Mama Tried: 10 Movies That Warned Humanity Not to Mess With Mother Nature

Jane Goodall is the world’s most famous primatologist and a lover of nature. She knows a thing or two about monkey business. Goodall thinks COVID-19 is a byproduct of our “disregard for nature.” This comes as no surprise to horror movie lovers such as ourselves.
