Both the American Prairie Reserve, located in northern Montana, and Iberá National Park, in northeastern Argentina, are reintroducing keystone species to their respective landscapes in order to benefit the ecosystems and the people who depend on them. In this special presentation, you can experience both of these wild places and their rebound stories without leaving home! Join us for an online screening of two short films, Last Wild Places: American Prairie Reserve and Last Wild Places: Iberá National Park, to learn more about how conservationists are working to protect these threatened landscapes. Following the films, stick around for a discussion with some of the people behind the rebirth of these areas and the filmmakers who brought their incredible stories to life, moderated by Greg McGruder, The National Geographic Society's Curator for Global Events.
This program is presented as partnership with the DC Environmental Film Festival as part of Films Across Borders, an American University-led partnership with embassies and culture institutions in Washington, D.C. Now in its sixth year, the cinematic offerings reflect this year's theme, Stories of Resilience and Hope. https://www.american.edu/soc/films-across-borders/
