Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
At a meeting in 1962, a young woman turned the scientific community upside down with the announcement that chimpanzees make tools in the wild. Jane Goodall's discovery was the beginning of thirty years of patient and intimate primate observation in the wilds of Kenya; years that redefined what it is to be a human being. Like humans, chimpanzees innovate with tools to survive. Like humans, their complex society is a community of power structures and playful abandon. Like humans, chimpanzees make love and war. Learn about our closest living relatives who share 99% of our genetic heritage and have much to teach us about nurturing and personality. Discover how working in the wild feeds your spirit as nothing else can. Be inspired by someone who dared to become what she dreamed and whose work now ranks among the great scientific achievements of the 20th century. (hosted by Michael Toms)
