"The chimps opened the door for all the other animals" : Dr Jane Goodall : Part 1

As South Africa prepares to mark “World Wildlife Day” this weekend, Dr Jane Goodall has told HOT1027 that parents need to encourage curiosity in their children and nurture their “inner scientists”.

Ahead of her 90th birthday, Dame Goodall visited Hot House to share some of her insights and her remarkable journey with us.

We also found out that criminals have tried to break into the welfare facility on at least three occasions recently.

So, thanks to the generosity of HOT1027 listeners , we'll be contributing towards security camera's for Chimp Eden to the tune of R20 000.
