Mireya Mayor

March 19th @ 8pm, Winspear Opera House

From NFL Cheerleader

to National Geographic Explorer

 

As a two-time Emmy Award-nominated field correspondent for the National Geographic Channel, Mireya Mayor has reported to audiences worldwide on pertinent wildlife and habitat issues. Closest to her heart is her ongoing study of a newfound species of Microcebus, or mouse lemur, which she discovered on a 2000 field expedition in Madagascar. Her work with this rare primate inspired the prime minister of Madagascar to establish a national park to help protect the new species, conserving the 10 percent that remains of the African island nation’s once vast forest.

Mayor recently earned her Ph.D. while conducting research on the effects of forest fragmentation and isolation on two types of lemurs found only in northern Madagascar. Earning her the nickname of “female Indiana Jones”, Mayor’s Ultimate Explorer TV expeditions have taken her to Central Africa’s gorillas, underwater with the six-foot (1.8-meter) Humboldt squid, and into a veterinarian’s haven for leopards in Namibia.

Leave No Trace

How to Camp and Leave No Trace cover image

Leave No Trace and Whole Earth Provision Company go way back. In the 1970s we gave away copies of Gerry Cunningham’s booklet How to Camp and Leave No Trace, an early introduction to the ethic and principles of the movement. Now, in 2012, we’re sponsoring three Leave No Trace training clinics in our stores. Trainers will be on hand at Dallas Mockingbird, Austin North Lamar and San Antonio stores to introduce you to Leave No Trace and to answer your questions.  We’re creating a special section on our website devoted to Leave No Trace.  You’ll find more information about the store events and the principles and history of the movement.
