Whether camping with coastal wolves on Vancouver’s western beaches, pursuing peregrine falcons in London, or filming leopards in the streets of Mumbai, Bertie Gregory captures the essence of what it means to coexist peacefully—with respect and humor—alongside the magnificent creatures of the natural world.
Host of National Geographic’s Wild_Life, as well as the winner of the 2015 Scientific Exploration Society Zenith Explorer award and 2012 Youth Outdoor Photographer of the Year prize, Gregory is a passionate advocate for the natural world. Join Bertie Gregory as he takes us into the lives of the animals in our own backyard, in hopes of inspiring us to protect them.
“I fell in love with the west coast of Vancouver Island just after I left high school. It’s just an incredible landscape, and it just doesn’t get any better than that.” – Bertie Gregory

Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
