"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."

Starting August 5, National Geographic will produce the television event Yellowstone Live, a four-night, multiplatform broadcast that will explore the nation's oldest national park in real time. 

With approximately 400 animal species, dramatic canyons, lush forests, hot springs, gushing geysers and alpine rivers, Yellowstone is one of the Earth's greatest ecosystems.

Filmmakers and photographers, supported by a crew of 200, will deliver footage from the more than 25 locations in the park, using a network of 34 live cameras and and bonded cellular technology. 

The broadcast will feature a "Magma Cam," a thermal imaging camera that will reveal Yellowstone's thermal features; aerial views of essential wildfires; aerial filming of wolf packs in remote wilderness areas; and footage from inside a beaver lodge. The production will work to acquire footage of Yellowstone's most elusive animals, including grizzly bears, wolves, cougars, bison, coyotes, beavers, bald eagles and elk.

"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," says Geoff 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."
