Throughout the course of four nights, witness Earth's greatest wildlife, captured by 25 live cameras across 35 locations, which has never been done before, and cutting-edge, first-ever cell-phone bundling technology to broadcast in the most remote locations. Covering the expanse of up to 34,000 square miles, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is one of the largest nearly intact ecosystems on Earth. YELLOWSTONE LIVE, which premieres on National Geographic and simulcast the following three nights on Nat Geo WILD,is the ultimate virtual American destination, and you don't even have to pack your bags!Immerse yourselves in the magnificent sights and sounds of one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, overflowing with mesmerizing landscapes, dramatic canyons, gushing geysers, bubbling mud pots, lush forests and more than 300 animal species.

YELLOWSTONE LIVE will be anchored from National Geographic's wilderness home base in West Yellowstone'sBar N Ranch and supported by an eye in the sky and more than seven live crews. Joining Elliott at the studio hubwill be animal expert, zoologistand naturalist Chris Packham alongside some of the creatures that call Yellowstone home. Both will give viewers access to prime locations across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem - from the Gallatin Mountain Range and Lamar Valley to Old Faithful and much more.

Poole, a lauded National Geographic filmmaker who worked on last summer's epic Earth Live, and Hogan, a local wildlife photographer who filmed the network's Wild Yellowstone, will integrate cutting-edge camera technology to bring Yellowstone to life for viewers across the nation.

"As the host of National Geographic's YELLOWSTONE LIVE, I will help navigate viewers through this beloved destination filled with unparalleled wildlife and extraordinary natural wonders," says host Josh Elliott. "During this four-day extravaganza atop one of the world's most active supervolcanoes, geysers could erupt or wild grizzlies and bison could cause traffic jams in a moment's notice...nothingis off the table on our trek across America's national treasure."

"With YELLOWSTONE LIVE, we hope to leave no stone unturned as cameras film more than 22 million acres across three states and five national forests to capture the stunning beauty and wonder of the most remote wilderness in the lower 48 states," saysGeoff Daniels, President of Original Programming and Production for National Geographic and Nat Geo WILD. "Our exceptional lineup of storytelling experts will immerse viewers into a four-day journey that encapsulates everything that is great about America and its wildlife."
