Pete has been the keynote speaker at scores of universities, corporate retreats, museums, non-profits, and community events -- from audiences over 2500 to private confidential board retreats of 20. He even gave one talk during a power outage where he managed to captivate his audience with humor and off the cuff banter. Below are two presentations that are part of a series called, Chasing Rivers, that Pete did with National Geographic Live. The first is about how Pete paddled and hiked the length of the Colorado River Delta, photographing and filming a conservation success—the river's triumphant, yet temporary, return to the sea.
In the second presentation, Pete takes a photographic and scientific journey along India's sacred waterway, the Ganges, which is believed to be a sacred river, but struggles with a detrimental pollution problem.
