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

National Geographic >

While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining National Geographic Live events this season, including Hidden Wild: Secrets of the Everglades (July 19–21, 2020), From Summit to Sea (August 2–4, 2020) and Building the Photo Ark (August 16–18, 2020). All ticket holders will be notified.


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.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. The orchestra will not perform on this program.

From Summit to Sea (National Geographic Live)

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.
