Join us for our final Nat Geo Live field trip and go around the world in search of big cats – tigers, leopards, jaguars, and more! We’ll travel through the Asian jungles, over the Himalayas, into the rainforests, and even to Hollywood, overcoming danger and having a few laughs along the way.
When: March 26
Where: Blumenthal Performing Arts Center & Discovery Place, Charlotte NC
Registration Deadline: January 26
NOTE: We’re at our max, but members can register to get on the waiting list for cancellations.
During this Nat Geo Live presentation, we’ll go around the world in search of big cats with award-winning photographer Steve Winter. A determined explorer, Winter will lead us from the Asian jungles where resilient tiger populations persist, to the Himalaya, home of the rare snow leopard. Follow him into the rainforests of Latin America to view the elusive jaguar – and to Hollywood in pursuit of the American cougar. He’ll share both dangerous and lighter moments: from getting stuck in quicksand to mishaps with remote-controlled cameras.
Co-author of the National Geographic book Tigers Forever, Winter’s mission is to share the beauty of big cats while working to save them. Following the presentation, we’ll go to nearby Discovery Place to learn more about cats – both big and small!
