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.
Very important Masterclass that doesn't just talk about the problems, but also gives some answers to help solving those.
It raised my awareness about different issues, and taught the ways how I can make a difference. Thank you!
This was an amazing treat - to learn all about Jane's history, what fueled her initial interest in chimpanzees, all the valuable information she learned about them, and then how she then became such an activist for conservation. She is a true gift to humanity.
I loved the storytelling. Most of the information that was shared, I already know because of my field of study and occupation. Nevertheless, I learned how to connect to people more to the environment. What I appreciated most is from the classmates' comments on how much they learned and were inspired to make positive changes.
