John Francis, National Geographic Society vice president of research, conservation and exploration, will discuss his role at National Geographic and the organization’s support of exploration around the globe.

Conrad Anker, renowned alpinist, The North Face athlete, and friend of the Moose, will recount his 275-mile journey on foot through the remote Chang Tang to witness births of the elusive Tibetan antelope at their high-altitude calving grounds.
