Teaches Conservation

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.

Take action

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.


Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Never give up....Be positive ....and at least change "your" world for the better and set an example.....perhaps it will inspire others and positive good will will spread over the world.

Jane Goodall was wonderful to listen to and so full of stories. Always explaining things in nice simple easy to remember terms. Glad that I watched it

All humans as a whole could greatly benefit from paying closer attention to Dr. Goodall's teachings.

What impresses me most is that despite the horrors and degradation which Jane has witnessed--land, animals, people--she remains able to be optimistic and to inspire. I'm inspired! Glad to learn more about Roots and Shoots and will look into it.

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.

I'm a retired elementary teacher who has admired Jane Goodall since I was a little girl. I'm excited to have her class be my first Master Class, which was a gift from my husband. I'm particularly keen about digging into the Roots and Shoots programs with my 6 young grandchildren. I live near the coast of Maine, in the midst of some Rachel Carson preserves, another "idol" of mine, as well as a great steward of this planet.

Hi Everyone, I'm from Brazil. I'm really impressed by this site. I didn't know about it until 2 days ago and after finding Dr. Jane Goodall class I couldn't avoid myself getting into this. And for me it's getting better and better: outstanding quality and complementary material are just great. And, by the way, it's a great time to think about conservation around here, I live about 80km away from that Vale's dam that flooded everything here in Brumadinho. I hope we can get it right this time.

Dave Reynolds here from Chicago Illinois looking forward to Jane Goodall's class on conservation. Jane's body of work studying animal behavior and the environment is unequaled and am looking forward to diving into this class.
