Last Wild Places: Rewilding the Americas - Nat Geo Museum
Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 4pm
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre
Free with Registration
National Geographic Live has been one of the Barclay's most popular series, presenting explorers who journey to the unknown edges of the world.
Now, the National Geographic Society is happy to bring the excitement of National Geographic directly to you with a free virtual event!
Both the American Prairie Reserve, located in northern Montana, and Iberá National Park, in northeastern Argentina, are reintroducing keystone species to their respective landscapes in order to benefit the ecosystems and the people who depend on them. In this special presentation, you can experience both of these wild places and their rebound stories without leaving home!
Join us for an online screening of two short films, Last Wild Places: American Prairie Reserve and Last Wild Places: Iberá National Park, to learn more about how conservationists are working to protect these threatened landscapes. Then stick around for an online discussion with the people behind the rebirth of these areas and the filmmakers who brought their incredible stories to life, moderated by Vanessa Serrao, the National Geographic Society’s executive producer for Impact Media.
This program is presented as part of Films Across Borders, an American University-led partnership with embassies and culture institutions in Washington. Now in its sixth year, the cinematic offerings reflect this year's theme, Stories of Resilience and Hope.
