An Interview With Jane Goodall

St. Louis, Mo. –

More than 40 years ago, Jane Goodall started watching chimpanzees in the forests of Tanzania. Her time living with the animals led to new observations about their behavior and culture.

She's now an internationally known scientist who spends most her time traveling the lecture circuit. Goodall brought her message of conservation and preservation to St. Louis Thursday and spoke with KWMU's Tom Weber at the Science Center.

Goodall says St. Louisans should care about declining chimpanzee populations in Africa because it's reflective of other species.
