Pursuit of the Black Panther

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre

Wildlife photographer and cinematographer Shannon Wild is a passionate conservationist who lives in Africa but works wherever wildlife calls. In her 15 years documenting wildlife, she’s been pinned by a cheetah, charged by an elephant, lions, and buffalo, and bitten countless times by snakes and lizards.

But her most recent assignment might prove her most difficult yet: producing a documentary about a rare black panther – the only one living in 250 square miles of dense forest in southern India. Get an inside look at the challenges and dangers of tackling an assignment in an unforgiving environment, from the narrow dirt roads to extreme weather to unexpected injuries – and worse.
