Event Description

We are pleased to announce the 2023 Anthony B. Evnin Lecture.

Stories have the power to persuade and motivate. In conservation, they can be a critical first step in convincing people to take action. In this talk, scientists turned wildlife photographers Jen Guyton *18 and Prasenjeet Yadav share stories from the field, from the savannas of Africa to the highest peaks of the Himalaya, and discuss their journeys to becoming storytellers.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. You may choose to attend in person at Princeton or virtually on a Zoom webinar.
