In a few short weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into the lush wilderness of New Guinea to meet 39 species of birds of paradise – one of the world’s most astonishing avian creatures, whose secret lives, bizarre displays and sultry courtship antics are explored at National Geographic Live’s “Birds of Paradise”, presented by Vancouver Civic Theatres.

Hosted by Tim Laman, an acclaimed photographer who has captured images of the world’s most rare and endangered birds, and Ed Scholes, who has conducted field research on birds of paradise for more than a decade, this fascinating affair features dazzling photography, video and compelling anecdotes that will immerse attendees in the rainforest home of these saucy birds.
