Noted wildlife conservationist visits IMAX for special screening
The Galapagos Islands top many nature-lovers’ bucket lists. Straddling the Equator in the midst of the Pacific Ocean, this volcanic island chain is a paradise unlike any other, and home to some 9,000 species.
On Tuesday, May 20, Chattanoogans will be able to witness the splendor of this remote and rugged destination with an experienced guide. Wildlife conservationist and Emmy Award-winning TV host Jeff Corwin will host a premiere screening of “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater.
“I was thrilled to provide the narration for this amazing project,” said Corwin. “It literally took my breath away. Despite traveling the world for 20 years hosting and creating documentaries, I was thoroughly impressed with this incredible film.”
Corwin will introduce “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” in the IMAX theater at 6 p.m. After the premiere screening, he will entertain questions about his experiences in the Galapagos and his efforts to study and protect wildlife around the world.
“I hope that this film will inspire a new generation to become good stewards of this delicate planet,” he added.
