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.
Dr. Goodall is such an inspiration to share her life and story. The basic premise to her life is connection, how we are all connected to our environment and the world. With connection comes responsibility to live to our fullest ability to care for all we have been given and to teach others that same sacred value.
This masterclass should be made mandatory for everyone on this planet..
Dr Jane is a great story teller. I was captivated by her experiences of how she started in the conservation area. I believe that she could have gone deeper into what we can do to stop and reverse the destruction of our precious ecosystem.
I love Jane's voice and her message of hope for humanity is important for us not to give up to make this world a better place. Love her humility.
