National Geographic LIVE: Pink Boots & a Machete

A former NFL cheerleader and daughter of Cuban immigrants who grew up in Miami, Mireya Mayor followed her unlikely dreams. In short order, she became a respected primatologist, audacious explorer and Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Mayor’s adventures have taken her—armed with little more than a backpack, notebooks and hiking boots—to some of the wildest and most remote places on earth. She’s been charged by gorillas, chased by elephants and bitten by poisonous insects and she keeps going back for more.
