How did T. rex become the iconic apex predator of North America 67 million years ago? Paleontologist DR. LINDSAY ZANNO is uncovering the answer. One of the world’s leading experts on the evolution of Cretaceous dinosaurs, she spends several months each year on expedition, scouring the remote badlands of western North America in search of clues. Along the way, she has discovered many new species—including one of the continent’s tiniest tyrannosaurs, Moros, which weighed only 170 pounds and stood barely five feet tall, and Siats, one of the largest American mega predators, tipping the scales at over 9,000 pounds. Dr. Zanno’s work has helped unravel how a cataclysmic climate crisis – marred by stagnant oceans, volcanic eruptions, and flooding continents – reshaped the dinosaurian world, wiping out top predators on land and in the sea.
Join her as she unravels how Cretaceous climate change made room for the evolution of Tyrannosaurus rex – the most famous carnivore of all time. Dr. Lindsay Zanno is Head of Paleontology at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and an Associate Research Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University. She is one of the world’s leading experts on the evolution of theropod dinosaurs — a group that includes the iconic predator T. rex and Velociraptor, as well as living birds. The hunt for new dinosaurs has taken her around the world to places such as China, Mongolia, Thailand, Tanzania, and across the American West.

Explore the remarkable ways people around the world are adapting to our changing planet with environmental anthropologist and filmmaker ALIZÉ CARRÈRE. Dive into the South Pacific waters of Vanuatu, where islanders are using innovative techniques to combat outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish that threaten the surrounding reefs. In Bangladesh, discover how farmers in low-lying areas are reviving an old agricultural technique – floating gardens – that has inspired other floating infrastructure, including schools, libraries, hospitals, and playgrounds. And travel to the mountainous desert of Ladakh in northern India to glimpse giant ice pyramids, or “ice stupas,” invented by a Ladakhi teacher and engineer to help the community preserve its scarce freshwater resources. Through her work documenting these stories, Carrère offers a hopeful look at the resilience, perseverance, and innovation of humankind under even the most difficult of conditions.
ALIZÉ CARRÈRE is a National Geographic Explorer, filmmaker, and PhD candidate researching and documenting human adaptations to environmental change. In 2013, Carrère received support from National Geographic to conduct research in Madagascar, where she spent several months uncovering an unlikely agricultural adaptation in response to severe deforestation. Learning of farmers who were turning erosional gullies into fertile pockets of farmland, her work evolved into a broader film and educational project on human resilience. She brings her social science background and extensive field experience to her filmmaking, with the goal of elevating the human dimensions of climate change. Carrère received both her B.A. and M.Sc. from McGill University, and is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of Miami where she is examining the relationship between architecture, climate change, and ecological urban utopias.
