Mireya Mayor coming to KC Zoo, Kauffman Center

Once a cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins, Mireya Mayor has since earned a reputation as the “female Indiana Jones.” Now an anthropologist and Emmy-nominated wildlife correspondent for National Geographic, Mayor has done everything from diving with great white sharks to getting charged by gorillas. She wrote about her adventure in her book Pink Boots and a Machete, and on May 20-21 Mayor will share her story and a report on current wildlife issues with Kansas City.

On Sunday, May 20th, Mayor will be giving special presentations at the polar bear exhibit at the Kansas City Zoo from 2:30 to 4pm. Then on Monday, May 21st at 7:30pm, Mayor will give her public presentation in Muriel Kauffman Theatre at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Before the show, the Kansas City Zoo will be visiting in Brandmeyer Great Hall with an interactive animal exhibit. Tickets are still available for this great night of exploration and adventure!        

Mayor’s presentation is the last of a four-part National Geographic LIVE series at the Kauffman Center. The series features National Geographic correspondents sharing their tales of exploration, discovery, and behind-the-scenes accounts of life on expedition. Accompanied by National Geographic’s stunning photography, speakers present on wildlife, innovation, ancient history, and more!
