Dive deep into the world’s oceans with one of National Geographic’s most seasoned photographers. Watch as Brian Skerry’s images illuminate the vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater using his camera to tell the story of some of the ocean’s most elusive inhabitants. His mission: to enlighten and inspire people to care about the beauty, bounty, and health of the world’s oceans. Join Skerry live on stage for an intimate look at dolphins’ intelligence, hang out with the enigmatic manatee, and explore the ocean in search of the first photos of Atlantic Bluefin tuna in the wild.
National Geographic Live speakers share their journeys of exploration from being on assignment around the world. Illustrated with award-winning photography and video, each evening concludes with a speaker-led audience Q&A session.
For its seventh season at the Kauffman Center, National Geographic Live features underwater photographer Brian Skerry (Jan. 9); wildlife photographer Florian Schulz (Feb. 6); marine biologist/photographer Cristina Mittermeier (March 6); and NASA astronaut Terry Virts (May 1).
