Furthering the knowledge and understanding of our world is the core purpose of National Geographic. Premium storytelling and visually stunning photography inspire people to act, enlightens their perspective, and provokes conversation.
National Geographic Live is a speaker series that brings to the stage first-hand accounts told by the magazine’s world-class explorers, photographers, scientists, filmmakers, and adventurers.
Mark Synnott is a man ever on the brink of new discovery. A big wall rock-climber of the highest order, he’s made legendary first ascents of some of the world’s tallest, most forbidding walls, from Baffin Island to Pakistan. Today, he uses his skills to break scientific ground, reaching incredibly inaccessible environments in search of rare species. It’s all in the spirit of adventure and exploration in order to educate about these sites of strange, remote beauty.
