Surviving a plane crash, being attacked by a gorilla, being chased by wild elephants…these stories and more are all in a day's work for explorer Mireya Mayor. She is a primatologist and Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. For this National Geographic Live event, she’ll share stories, images, and film clips of her adventures, offering a look at the hardships of life in the field and the discoveries that make it worthwhile.
