National Geographic Live

 

 

Live life on the edge of your seat with another daring season of National Geographic Live! Arts Commons Presents National Geographic Live brings you thought-provoking presentations by today’s leading explorers, scientists, and photographers.

This season, meet Zimbabwe’s first all-female ranger unit - the Akashinga – who battle poaching with their recruiter, former special operations sniper Damien Mander. Survive the wilds with biomedical scientist Zoltan Takacs, who collects venom from some of the world’s deadliest creatures in order to create medicines. Peer into Joel Sartore’s globe-trotting journey to photograph species on the brink of extinction. And finally, Dr. Kara Cooney uncovers the hidden histories behind Egypt’s most powerful female rulers, including the woman who would be called King.

Since Arts Commons began presenting the speaker series, National Geographic Live has gained tremendous momentum, expanding to performing arts centres around the globe. We are also proud to offer 5 education shows per year, helping our youth care about the planet.
