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).
Meet Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered—larger than T. rex—and hear the incredible story of how this prehistoric giant was almost lost to science, before being uncovered again with the help of paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim.
Originally discovered in Morocco more than half a century ago by German paleontologist Ernst Stromer, Spinosaurus’ fossil remains were lost in the Allied bombing of Germany during World War II. But recent fossil discoveries in the desert, along with Stromer’s own data and drawings, helped Ibrahim and contemporary scientists reconstruct a full skeletal model of Spinosaurus, which has been featured on the National Geographic Channel and presented in the National Geographic Museum.
With amazing video recreating the lost world of the Cretaceous-era Sahara, Ibrahim will tell the story of Spinosaurus’ discovery, loss, and rediscovery, and explain what—other than its size—makes this ancient monster unique.
