About this Talk

Top predators, jaguars and leopards require large spaces to roam, but human activity is shrinking—and sometimes transforming—their ranges. Through incredible stories and images from longtime National Geographic photographer Steve Winter, you’ll catch unique and powerful glimpses into their worlds and discover how camera-trap technology provides key information about these elusive animals that helps us better protect them.

Conservation photographer STEVE WINTER has been stalked by jaguars in Brazil, charged by a grizzly in Siberia, and trapped in quicksand in the world's largest tiger reserve in Myanmar. He's flown over erupting volcanoes and visited isolated villages where residents had never before seen a blond foreigner—or a camera. A National Geographic photographer since 1991, Steve specializes in wildlife, and particularly big cats. He’s won many prizes—including BBC Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year and Picture of the Year International’s Global Vision Award—and lectures globally on photography and conservation issues. He's appeared on National Geographic WILD, CBS Evening News, 60 Minutes, NPR, BBC, CNN, and other leading media outlets. Steve has filmed numerous shows for the National Geographic channel and his photography book, Tigers Forever, was published by National Geographic in 2013.
