Since the release of his award winning film and acclaimed book, Pete has given over 250 lectures throughout the U.S and abroad.
Pulling from his 17 years of assignment travel and research, Pete incorporates balanced, engaging stories with a humorous approach to inspire audiences on local and global issues around conservation, adventure, risk and reward.
He 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 is doing 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.
