National Geographic Live, sponsored by Subaru of America and Wagner Subaru, is a three-part speaker series showcasing our world through the eyes of National Geographic scientists, explorers, photographers, and filmmakers. Five Rivers MetroParks and Dayton Live are proud to partner in presenting this series to Dayton. Nat Geo Live events are amazing firsthand presentations by people who travel the world to get the powerful stories and images you’ve seen on the National Geographic Channel and in National Geographic magazine. Packed with amazing photography and video, each event concludes with a lively question-and-answer session, and an opportunity to meet the presenter in the lobby.
Arctic wolves by Ronan Donovan.
Chimpanzees, wolves, and gorillas are among the most charismatic of the mammals we know. We identify with them as species, groups, and even as named individuals. They’re also under threat. Join biologist-turned-photographer RONAN DONOVAN as he talks about his work in documenting these animals and what we, as fellow social mammals, can learn from them.
Join DR. KARA COONEY, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society.
