    A Life in the Wild: A Conversation with George Schaller

    Patagonia Ventura employees welcomed a very special guest yesterday afternoon. Dr. George Schaller, one of the world's preeminent field biologists, was recently awarded the Indianapolis Prize for his relentless pursuit to save endangered species across the globe since 1952. His visit to Patagonia was the first stop on a multi-city speaking tour in conjunction with the award.

    Dr. Schaller shared photographs and stories from two regions where his efforts helped establish wildlife preserves: the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Tibet's Chang Tang Plateau.

    On Monday, September 29, at 7:30 p.m. EDT, you too can see Dr. Schaller live via Webcast. The Indianapolis Prize is sponsoring a PBS Simulcast/Webcast called "A Life in the Wild: A Conversation with George Schaller." It will be an hour-long conversation with questions at the end, a format similar to Inside the Actor's Studio. If you can't make the Webcast, at least give these videos a look.

    I have to say, it was an honor meeting Dr. Schaller in person. Thank you for coming sir. Patagonia would also like to thank Heather Grisham, from the Indianapolis Zoo, who accompanied Dr. Schaller and assisted with the presentation.
