National Geographic Live: Social By Nature with Ronan Donovan

What’s a human? We are, at our core, social mammals. We build relationships, communicate, reproduce, establish territories, and adapt to shrinking resources. In these ways, we’re no different than other social mammals. Chimpanzees, wolves, and gorillas are among the most charismatic of the mammals we know. We identify with them as species, groups, and even as named individuals. They’re also under threat. 

Join acclaimed wildlife photographer Ronan Donovan for an evening as he talks about his work documenting these animals and what we, as fellow social mammals, can learn from them. The Whatcom Museum is proud to host National Geographic Explorer Ronan Donovan at the Mount Baker Theatre. 

His photography is also on exhibition in National Geographic’s Greatest Wildlife Photographs, on view at the Whatcom Museum, March 9 – September 8, 2024.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
