ABOUT MIREYA

A two-time Emmy Award-nominated field correspondent for the National Geographic Channel, Mireya Mayor has reported to audiences worldwide on pertinent wildlife and habitat issues.

Mayor earned her Ph.D. conducting research on the effects of forest fragmentation and isolation on two types of lemurs found in northern Madagascar. Closest to her heart is her ongoing study of a newfound species of Microcebus, or mouse lemur. Her work with this rare primate inspired the prime minister of Madagascar to establish a national park to help protect the new species, conserving the 10 percent that remains of the forest.

Mayor is featured in Mystery Gorilla and Wild Nights on the Nat Geo WILD network. In addition, she starred in the History Channel’s eight-part series Expedition Africa: Stanley & Livingstone.
