Teachers—take your class on an inspiring adventure at National Geographic headquarters to meet award-winning wildlife photographer Steve Winter and science and environmental writer Sharon Guynup. Together, this team spent 10 years documenting tigers, culminating in their new book, Tigers Forever. They will take your students on a journey from Myanmar’s leech-infested jungles to India, Sumatra, and Thailand. the two will share rare, close-up photos of tigers in the wild, tell inspiring stories of people who are protecting them for future generations, and demonstrate some of the technical wizardry involved in photographing these elusive and potentially dangerous animals. After this live event, your class is invited to explore the exhibition Lions & Tigers & Bears, featuring Winter’s photographs alongside that of photographers Paul Nicklen and Michael Nichols. Don’t miss this opportunity for your students to hear directly from these two talented and devoted journalists who are championing these majestic, elusive, and powerful cats.
