Growing up, I was obsessed with tigers, and now that I’m in my thirties, not much has changed. So I’m definitely going to see National Geographic Live this year to learn more about the jungle cats of India and more.

National Geographic Live is joining forces with Vancouver Civic Theatres to bring three breathtaking shows to the Orpheum Theatre this year.

At each show, you’ll meet a cast of talented filmmakers and photographers who will tell you all about their explorations to different corners of the globe.

Whether you’re looking for travel inspiration or just want to get closer to your favourite animals, this is a must-see for anyone who loves the earth and all its wonders.

Check out the three available shows below.
