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.
I am overwhelmed by her personality. In the end I shed a few tears because I realized that I can do more and I am disappointed that I did not start earlier. This has never been triggered inside me by a person just by telling. Unbelievable!!!
Amazing and inspiring person! I learned that I already do lots of things ther right way, but there's always more to do. And even if it sounds a little bit selfish, but you get a great feeling about it by recognizing what you do right. So it's a win-win-situation.
I have gone from someone wanting to learn what is unknown. I want to bring others along with me on the journey for that knowledge in making our world better.
Each Master Class has helped me, at the very least, on a technical and professional level. I have become a better writer because of them. Jane Goodall's is the first I feel has helped put me on the path to become a better human being. I can never thank her enough.
