Designed By Nature (National Geographic Live)

National Geographic >

A former member of the U.S. International Figure Skating Team, bioengineer Kakani Katija now studies the graceful movements of life below the surface. Join her for a fascinating look at one of the least explored ecosystems on our planet — the ocean’s midwaters — and learn how its inhabitants could lead to breakthroughs in bio-inspired design.

Designers and engineers have drawn inspiration from our natural world for decades, creating innovations as groundbreaking as manned flight, and Katija’s own early work has led to energy efficient jellyfish-inspired robotics. Now, she studies little-known sea creatures that have the potential to make a big impact on some of our world’s most critical problems. As a certified research diver, Katija conducts field studies around the world, gathering data to help her develop technologies for exploring this ocean twilight zone and imagining — and creating — possibilities for the future.

Hidden Wild: Secrets of the Everglades (National Geographic Live)

National Geographic >

Author, photographer, conservationist and National Geographic explorer Carlton Ward Jr. travels the world to find and document conservation stories that have not yet been told. He has lived deep in the Amazon, documented new species in the rainforests of the Gabon and photographed endangered desert elephants in Mali. Then he discovered the biggest untold story of his career hiding in his own back yard.

An eighth-generation Floridian, he is now using his camera to tell the story of a little-known world surviving in the shadows of the beaches and amusement parks that dominate Florida’s identity. He has trekked more than 2,000 miles on two National Geographic-supported expeditions, fighting to protect an endangered wildlife corridor needed to keep the Everglades connected to the rest of America. Join him to follow the footsteps of bears, panthers and cowboys while discovering the wonders of a hidden world on the brink of being lost.

From Summit to Sea (National Geographic Live)

National Geographic >

Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Andy Mann combines his passions with purpose as a voice for the world’s oceans, following scientists to some of the most extreme locations on the planet in the hope of inspiring change.

Andy’s journey from rock climber to ocean storyteller involves some remarkable detours and misadventures that prove that field science can be every bit as thrilling as the climbing adventures of his past. He has dived alongside crocodiles, sperm whales and sharks, and survived near misses with icebergs, all in pursuit of his ultimate goal: to shed light on Earth’s incredible ocean environments and advocate for their protection. 

He now spends over 100 days a year at sea, documenting cutting-edge marine science and telling the story of our rapidly changing planet — covering all seven continents for National Geographic.
