In short order, she became a respected primatologist, audacious explorer, and Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Mayor's adventures have taken her - armed with little more than a backpack, notebooks, and hiking boots - to some of the wildest and most remote places on earth. She's survived poisonous insect bites, been charged by gorillas, and chased by elephants - and keeps going back for more. Currently hosting Nat Geo WILD's series Wild Nights with Mireya Mayor, Mayor has been hailed as a "female Indiana Jones" and an inspiration to young women interested in science and exploration. She'll share stories, images, and film clips of her adventures, offering a 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.   X-ALT-DESC:
