Upcoming events in 2020:



Join Steve Winter "On the Trail of Big Cats" with National Geographic LIVE!


Trek into some of the world’s most remote locations with intrepid explorer and award-winning photographer Steve Winter as he tracks down big cats. For Steve, doing whatever it takes to document these majestic creatures in the wild is all in a day’s work, whether it’s camping at 15,000 feet in -40 degree temperatures, being charged by rhinos, or coming face to face with a tiger. Part of each assignment is simply trying to stay healthy – and stay alive. Steve will share his gripping tales live on stage, from capturing the nocturnal adventures of a mountain lion in the Hollywood hills and narrowly avoiding becoming jaguar prey in a Brazilian rainforest to documenting leopards in South Africa’s Sabi Sands. You can’t help but be inspired by Steve’s mission: to share the beauty of big cats while reinvigorating efforts to save them.




“Steve inspires audiences with stories from his assignments, but he also invites them to become invested in what’s happening with big cats,”
- Andy van Duym‎, Vice President for National Geographic Live.

National Geographic photographer Steve Winter spent a decade in search of wild tigers, devoted to capturing their magnificence and telling their story, hoping to reinvigorate global concern as their numbers continued to dwindle. In 2007, freelance journalist Sharon Guynup was working on a story about poaching in India's Kaziranga National Park--when she glimpsed her first wild tiger and began writing regularly about big cats. They produced a book, just out from National Geographic Books, called Tigers Forever: Saving the World's Most Endangered Big Cat, produced in collaboration with Panthera.
The team will share Steve's powerful images, tell field stories, and "talk tiger." They will discuss tiger behavior, why these cats have been feared and revered throughout human history, detail the threats that face them--and the bold initiatives and efforts of many to save them. In the final words of Tigers Forever, "Only 3,200 tigers remain, scattered in pockets across Asia. That’s a shockingly low number. The time to act is now. Once the last tigers disappear, no longer gliding on velvet paws through the jungle, we cannot bring them back."
