"Cheetahs on the Run" at the Rio Saturday January 26, 2013
Join Frans Lanting and Chris Eckstrom on a remarkable journey to uncover the secret life of the cheetah -- the fastest animal in the world, and the most vulnerable of all the big cats. In this year's show, Frans and Chris travel from the fabled Serengeti Plains of East Africa to the remote deserts of central Iran, where Frans gained exclusive access to document the last wild cheetahs left in Asia -- cats so rare that few people know they exist.
This show features images and video from a new assignment Frans and Chris produced for National Geographic, and includes coverage of cheetah "supermoms" raising kittens on the run -- and on the edge of survival -- as well as the little-known cultural history of cheetahs in Iran, which dates back thousands of years.
Join us for a fascinating afternoon or evening of discoveries and insights about the shiest and most elegant of great cats. Proceeds from the presentations will benefit the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at Long Marine Lab.
