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 love Jane, she's such a gentle yet powerful force. She really shows how much each of us can do to influence a change in the world. I am certainly inspired and encouraged by her wisdom and experience. She is a true elder. Thank you.
Well, I don't know that I have learned a lot of facts. However, I do feel like I have gained a certain knowledge... Following these classes was also about inspiration, motivation, and guidance on how to better my work in reaching out. thank you. What would have been extraordinary for me would have been fact sheets and references to enriche the stories told.
To hear Dr. Jane Goodall, a lifelong hero of mine, speak about all she's learned has been an absolute thrill!
Love Jane! She is such an inspiration. So well spoken.
