      National Geographic Live! — "Pink Boots and a Machete with Mireya Mayor"

      Anthropologist & Female Indiana Jones Mireya Mayor

      Mireya Mayor has been called the “female Indiana Jones” for her globe-trotting work as an explorer, primatologist and wildlife correspondent for National Geographic. A former NFL cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins, Mayor discovered her fascination with primate life in college, which inspired her to get her PhD in anthropology. Now a Fulbright Scholar, National Science Foundation Fellow and Emmy-nominated wildlife correspondent, Mayor has swam with sharks, been chased by elephants and even discovered an entirely new species of mouse lemur in Madagascar. In this talk at the Hammer Theatre Center in San Jose, hear Mayor discuss her most daring exploits, accompanied by unbelievable photography and videos.
