[LISTEN] The Science Inside #34 – About elephants, organ transplants and dinosaurs

What do dinosaurs, organ transplants and elephants that detect land mines all have in common?
They’re all studied by Wits University scientists! Have a listen to this episode of The Science Inside radio show.

The Wits Evolutionary Studies Institute’s Dr Jonah Choiniere tells us about how their new dinosaur find came about. The Chanceplant Initiative tells us why you should become a Organ Donor Foundation of SA donor, and we find out about some very special elephants with Ashadee Kay Miller.




SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
