CHEETAHS ON THE RUN
Join photographer Frans Lanting and videographer Chris Eckstrom on a remarkable journey to uncover the secret life of the cheetah--the fastest animal in the world, and the most vulnerable of all the big cats. In this year's show, Frans and Chris travel from the fabled Serengeti Plains of East Africa to the remote deserts of central Iran, where Frans gained exclusive access to document the last wild cheetahs left in Asia--cats so rare that few people even know they exist. This show features images and video from a brand-new assignment Frans and Chris produced for National Geographic, and includes coverage of cheetah "supermoms" raising kittens on the run--and on the edge of survival--as well as the little-known cultural history of cheetahs in Iran, which dates back thousands of years. Join us for a fascinating afternoon or evening of discoveries and insights about the shiest and most elegant of great cats.

Frans and Chris have a gift for connecting us with the lives of animals and showing us the world through their eyes. This presentation features stunning images and thoughtful commentary on the challenges of global conservation and the role of photography in inspiring a new vision of our world.

"As a chronicler of natural history today, Frans Lanting is a singular, extraordinary talent," said Thomas Kennedy, former director of photography at National Geographic. "He has the mind of a scientist, the heart of a hunter, and the eyes of a poet."

Proceeds from this presentation will benefit the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at Long Marine Laboratory. Located in Santa Cruz on the bluffs overlooking Monterey Bay, the Seymour Center provides exciting and engaging ocean education programs for the visiting public and for students of all ages. It is dedicated to educating youth, families, and the general public about the role science plays in the understanding and conservation of the world's oceans. The Seymour Center is open six days a week, year-round, and serves more than 65,000 people each year.
