About the Event

In a dynamic evening of adventure, exploration, imagery, and music, award-winning National Geographic photographer Andy Mann, shares a behind-the-scenes look at some of the wildest places on our planet. As a founding member of SeaLegacy, Andy sails the seven seas to tell the stories of our natural world, in a quest to protect it.  Drawing on classic folk troubadour traditions, the quartet weaves in a delightfully warped, salty sense of storytelling to original musical arrangements and stunning images from above and below the surface of the ocean. Joining Andy on stage is a renowned string band of multi-instrumentalists, featuring Eli West, Patrick M’Gonigle & Forest Marowitz.

About the Speaker

Andy Mann is an Emmy-nominated director, 12-time Telly Award winner, National Geographic photographer, and marine conservationist. In 2013, while Andy was working with National Geographic Pristine Seas, the Russian Geographic Society awarded the program the Crystal Compass Award for the storytelling that led to the designation of the world’s largest Arctic national park, in Franz Josef Land, Russia. In 2015, he directed the first Oceano Azul Foundation expedition to Azores, resulting in the declaration of 150,000 square kilometers of new marine protected area in the Azorean Sea. His work in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean in 2018-2021 helped create the world’s first international marine protected area. A public speaker, songwriter, and recording artist, Andy is also a founding member of the nonprofit SeaLegacy with Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier.
