Goodall discusses her latest book, “Hope For Animals And Their World: How Endangered Species Are Being Rescued From The Brink,” (which chronicles, among other things, a few dozen success stories of folks across the globe rescuing a wide array of species from extinction); offers a short list of the people who’ve had the same type of profound impact on her life that she’s had on so many lives across the globe; addresses her view of zoos, some of which played a pivotal role in the book’s extinction-rescue success stories; talks about chimps, ranging from her annual visits to Gombe, to some chimp sanctuaries, to captive chimps’ attacks on humans; discusses the potent feelings of Hope that have fueled her outlook and work for decades; explains what constitutes an ideal day on the road (she travels about 300 days a year) and an ideal day at home, and more.
