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.

Jane is an inspiration! Her sound advice on how to approach and practice change is excellent and makes implementation seem achievable. Taking her class has been life-changing.

Jane has taught me so much. I've always been a passionate animal advocate but now my commitment to the environment has been strengthened and I realize that offering my message through ways of the heart will be more effective than through anger or grief. I am also inspired to get involved in Roots and Shoots. Thank you so much for this incredibly meaningful Masterclass.

An incredibly moving and inspiring picture of what we need to do in order to become a better world. Change starts within each of us. Jane's style and story is beautiful and motivating.

... that my everyday choices can make a difference, that being courageous pays off and little steps can lead to big changes.

The globe would be different if everyone took the time to listen to this remarkable, informed, heartfelt person talk about the Earth Plan and how to move forward.

I read the book “for the love of chimps” until the pages were worn out in junior high. I dreamt of being like Jane. Always will be a person of influence in my life.

I received this Masterclass from a dear friend in January. Talking with her today, I remembered I hadn't yet started a class. She suggested I take a class that is fun and when I was looking through the great list of Masters, I knew when I saw Dr. Jane Goodall that was the class for me. As a young girl, I loved reading everything I could about Jane's Chimpanzee study. Today, I am excited to reconnect with Jane and learn more about how I as a Mom and leader in my community can make a difference for our future.

I started late... Registered to this class before it even became available. And then life went on, with new personal and career chalenges. And I forgot about this great gift I've made to myself: to register to a class with a mentor, the most inspiring person I know. And today 2 years after I registered, I officially began my class. This is one of the greatest gift I ever had. We always wait for things to be perfect. Make the perfect actions, have the perfect timing, reach the perfect moment... I've now learned that the most significant things we can ever do lie in these imperfect moments we decide to achieve anyway. And today, for me, this a big one.

I have always been fascinated and thrilled with Jane Goodall's experiences with Chimpanzees. I wanted to be like her sooo bad, because she is truly an inspiration to humans regarding the treatment of animals and our planet. I am excited to see what golden nuggets she has to share. Thank you Jane Goodall

I took a photo of a chimp named Pogo at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. What is his history and status, please?

I am an artist, who has worked in the field of special education. I am sharing the photo of my cat, Sakura, because she is very special to me.
