A guest who traveled to Antarctica with us last season pinged us with an excited note on Facebook: “Great to see Lindblad featured in a music video at the Jason Mraz concert in Portland tonight! Our family has been on several Lindblad trips so were so psyched to see the familiar logo!” A quick search revealed that he’s been showing video he shot as the backdrop to some of his shows. Keep an eye out for us!
National Geographic explorer-in-residence Jared Diamond studies traditional tribal societies and has written several books, including Collapse, The World Until Yesterday, and the Pulitzer prize winner Guns, Germs, and Steel. In this talk, he offers insight into how tribal societies deal with aging and offers some lessons modern societies can learn from them.
If you’d like to meet and travel with Jared Diamond, he’ll be aboard National Geographic Explorer for an expedition in the high Arctic this summer (June 21, 2013). A few cabins are still available.
