Auditorium Theatre, Chicago IL
National Geographic

Husband-and-wife duo Tim Laman and Cheryl Knott have dedicated their lives to understanding and protecting orangutans, a threatened species that can only be observed a handful of places around the world. Together, biological anthropologist Knott and photojournalist Laman have combined innovative new techniques with traditional fieldwork to get a closer look at these incredible animals. In this presentation, the pair provides a closer look into the work that they’ve done with this intelligent, resourceful, and endangered species with whom we share 97% of our DNA, giving us insights not only into the animals’ world, but also our own.

"National Geographic Live" — Ocean Soul
Auditorium Theatre, Chicago IL
National Geographic

National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry has captured the soul of the sea for more than 20 years, spending more than 10,000 hours underwater (often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters). Journey with him from the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the Gulf of St. Lawrence in search of the endangered bluefin tuna, to research facilities around the world to study dolphin intelligence. The images Skerry captures offer a mesmerizing glimpse into the soul of the sea and remind us why we need to preserve our oceans.
