On the Trail of Big Cats

February 18, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE LECTURE BY STEVE WINTER (UNITED STATES)

GRADES 5-8

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Journey around the world in search of big cats with award-winning National Geographic photographer Steve Winter. Follow his trail from the Asian jungles where resilient tiger populations persist, to the Himalaya, home of the rare snow leopard. Visit the rainforests of Latin America to view the elusive jaguar—and Hollywood in pursuit of the American cougar. Students will leave inspired by the beauty of big cats and empowered to help save them.
