This event has been cancelled

While this is likely not surprising news, DMPA will not present a traditional National Geographic Live Series in the 2020-21 season as most speakers simply will not be touring for the foreseeable future.

We will issue an automatic refund for your 2020-21 National Geographic Live Series season tickets in the form of your original payment for that transaction. No action is needed on your part. We will begin processing these refunds on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 (please allow up to 30 days for this to occur). 


BRIAN SKERRY
Photographer

Wildlife photographer Brian Skerry has spent more than four decades exploring the world’s oceans—capturing “the soul of the sea” for National Geographic for more than 20 years. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects.

His book, Ocean Soul, is a stunning tribute to our seas. Go beyond its pages to journey with him from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face the threat of declining sea ice, to the temperate waters of New Zealand, home of the fastest shark in the world—the mako. He’ll share a fascinating look at some of the oceans’ apex predators, as well as stories of hope from marine reserves where wildlife is protected and thriving. A passionate spokesman for the oceans he loves to photograph, Skerry inspires reverence for the marine realm and powerful motivation to protect it.
