Description: The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents National Geographic Live with “Pink Boots and a Machete” on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. A former NFL cheerleader and daughter of Cuban immigrants who grew up in Miami, Mireya Mayor followed her unlikely dreams. In short order, she became a respected primatologist, audacious explorer, and Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Hailed as a “female Indiana Jones” and an inspiration to young women interested in science and exploration, Mireya Mayor has been charged by gorillas, chased by elephants, and survived poisonous insect bites in some of the wildest and most remote places on Earth. She shares stories, images, and film clips of her adventures in this behind-the-scenes look at the hardships and danger of life in the field, along with the moments of discovery that make it all worthwhile.
