The Program in Human Biology, Stanford University warmly invites the public (especially students) who love Pandas, Gorillas, Tigers, and other wild animals to a fantastic slide show presented by world adventurer, animal hero, and winner of National Geographic’s, Adventure Lifetime Achievement Award, George Schaller.
George Schaller, the Vice President at the Wildlife Conservation Society and Panthera, has dedicated his career to species conservation. Discover magazine describes Schaller as "the finest field biologist of our time and the most powerful voice for conservation in more than 100 years." He has studied and helped protect, mountain gorillas, lions, giant pandas and Tibetan antelopes. He trained nationals in their own country to carry on the work (including the Afghanis, who live in the high mountains rife with Taliban and military conflict, to save the Marco Polo sheep). He has many popular writings including 16 books, among them, The Deer and the Tiger, The Year of the Gorilla, The Serengeti Lion, and The Last Panda.
