Join me for a FREE online webinar: Costa Rica & the Panama Canal
Join me and veteran Expedition Leader Gustavo Abarca for an insider’s view of "Costa Rica & the Panama Canal" on a free online webinar hosted by Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic Expeditions, to be aired live on September 21, 2009. (I'll be posting in due course when the site link is live' and you are able to register.)
Experience the quest for wildlife aboard the company's expedition ship, the National Geographic Sea Lion, and see and hear how you will explore more with our state-of-the-art tools for exploration (undersea cameras, hydrophones, zodiacs, kayaks, and more). Plus, I'll be sharing photography tips and anecdotes about fascinating wildlife encounters and the transit of the legendary Panama Canal during the webinar.
Have questions? You can participate by sending your queries live.
I'll be acting as National Geographic expert/photographer on two Lindblad/National Geographic Expeditions cruise-tours, January 23-30 and January 31-February 6, 2010.
Please join me. Space is limited!
