EXPEDITION AFRICA: STANLEY & LIVINGSTONE Season premiere: May 31 at 10pm/9c on HISTORY. An explorer, wildlife correspondent, anthropologist and inspirational speaker, Dr. Mireya Mayor, a Ph.D. in anthropology, has reported on wildlife and habitat issues for worldwide audiences. A former NFL cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins, Mayor grew up in a big city and as a little girl wasnt allowed to join the Girl Scouts because her family thought it was too dangerous. In spite of this, Dr. Mayor went on to become the first female wildlife correspondent for the "Ultimate Explorer" series on National Geographic Television, and has spent more than 10 years exploring some of the wildest and most remote places on earth, often armed with little more than a backpack, notebooks and hiking boots. She has slept in remote jungles teeming with poisonous snakes, gone diving with great white sharks, been charged by gorillas and chased by elephants.
