Meet Dr. Jane. She's one of the most accomplished scientists and conservationists of our time. And now, she's your instructor.
Topics include: Introduction
In case you're wondering what I'm going to be talking about in this MasterClass, I want to tell you a little bit about how it all began, about my life's journey, and how it led me to the forests of Gombe to study the chimpanzees there, how I did it. I'd like to share with you a little bit about some of the amazing things that I've been able to find out about these closest relatives of ours. And I'd like to tell you why it was I felt I had to leave the forest that I love-- because chimpanzees are decreasing in numbers right across Africa-- how I got to understand about extinction, about the destruction of the environment, about all the harm that we humans have inflicted on Mother Earth. And most importantly, I'd like to share with you what we can all do together to right the wrongs, to heal some of the harm, and especially, what you can do to make this a better world. I'm Jane Goodall, and this is my MasterClass.
There is still a window of time. Nature can win if we give her a chance. In her first ever online class, Dr. Jane Goodall teaches how you can conserve the environment. She also shares her research on the behavioral patterns of chimpanzees and what they taught her about conservation. You'll learn how to act locally and protect the planet.
Jane Goodall has such a calm and compassionate disposition. I love her approach to problems and problem solving and working collaboratively to share what she has learned in a manner to make it accessible and not make people feel shamed or intimated. If anyone wants an example of someone to emulate with high emotional intelligence - it's Jane Goodall.
It reinforced by desire to help make a change in our society as I ponder the next phase of my life. And to help others also think about their impact in this world. Thank you!
The class was profoundly motivational and empowers to care for both your fellow humans and the environment.
Jane's courage and tenacity is inspiring. I continued to be awed by the support she received from her mother.
