National Geographic Live! On the Trail of Big Cats

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 @ 7:30pm
McGlohon Theatre
Presented by Blumenthal Performing Arts Center

Go around the world in search of big cats with award-winning photographer Steve Winter. A determined explorer, Winter will lead you from 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 new National Geographic book Tigers Forever, Winter’s mission is to share the beauty of big cats while working to save them.

Steve Winter has been leading photographic expeditions to remote locations for over 20 years, all with the mission of saving big cats. He is fiercely dedicated to the protection of jaguars, cougars, leopards, snow leopards, and tigers. Since signing as a photojournalist for Black Star Photo Agency, Winter has produced stories for GEO, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Natural History, Business Week, and National Geographic, among others. Winter has become the foundation for the National Geographic Big Cats Initiative, a long-term commitment to stop poaching, preserve habitats, and support education to stop extinction of the world’s large cat species.
