Award-winning wildlife filmmaker, Bob Poole, will be presenting a National Geographic Live! lecture and photographic overview on Thursday, January 21 at 7:30 pm at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts. Join the acclaimed cinematographer for an unforgettable evening showcasing images and stories of majestic wildlife and spectacular scenery.
A childhood in East Africa gave Bob Poole a fierce curiosity about the natural world as well as an adventurous spirit. Now, for National Geographic, Poole is drawing on that experience to document the rebirth of a lost Eden: Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, a jewel of Africa’s parks system until civil war almost destroyed it.
There, he joined forces with rangers and scientists (including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole), on perhaps the biggest conservation project on the planet. He’ll share secrets of filming lions, crocodiles, elephants, and tell how he found prime locations for documenting the park’s stunning wildlife.
This lecture will be followed by a Q&A session. Tickets to this event start at $30 for adults and $5 for those 18 and under. Reserve your seats today by calling the Box Office at (928) 684-6624. For more information or video previews, visit www.dewpac.org.
