Emerging Explorers And Emerging Artists Unite On The Forefront Of Renaissance Exploration And Research

"Meet two individuals on the forefront of exploration and research and take part in the new National Geographic Live! Emerging Explorers Salon. This event, held in the studios of the National Geographic Channel, showcases Losang Rabgey, executive director of Machik, an NGO whose mission is to empower and strengthen local communities on the Tibetan plateau, and Maria Fadiman, an ethnobotanist who studies how indigenous peoples in Latin America and Africa use plants.

These two women were recently inducted into the National Geographic Emerging Explorers program, an initiative established to recognize and support uniquely gifted and inspiring adventurers, scientists, and others who—at the beginning of their careers—are making significant contributions to world knowledge through exploration."
