Introducing Dr. Jane Goodall, our newest instructor! Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace and one of the world’s most renowned naturalists and conservationists, will offer her first-ever online class on Conservation.
For over 55 years, Goodall has dedicated her life’s work and studies to animal sciences and ethology, with a strong focus on chimpanzees and human impact on the environment. At the very young age of 26, Goodall traveled to Tanzania with a fascination for wildlife, and left with a mission to save the chimpanzee species and spread a message of hope for our planet. In 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute to continue her passion for species conservation and protecting chimpanzees from extinction. Her groundbreaking work and research with chimpanzees has helped redefine the relationship between humans and animals.
In her MasterClass, Goodall will address and respond to the environmental concerns of the modern age and the climate we live in. She will share her expert advice on communication and advocacy strategies, as well as a global view of the interconnected threats to animals and the environment. Through her course, students will learn about chimpanzee behavior, animal intelligence, human impact on the environment, environmental conservation, and Goodall’s reasons for hope in the next generation of activists.
“There is no better time for people everywhere to have access to this course and take individual action to drive change. There are too few days in the year and only one place I can be at a time. This course gives me an opportunity to share my research and insights with people all around the globe.” – Dr. Jane Goodall
