About National Geographic
The National Geographic Society is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization that pushes the boundaries of exploration to further our understanding of our planet and empower us all to generate solutions for a more sustainable future. For 130 years, we’ve funded groundbreaking scientists and explorers and shared their findings with the world. To date, we’ve given out more than 13,000 grants to scientists and conservationists whose work is making a significant difference in the world. We sponsored Hiram Bingham as he brought back stories from Machu Picchu, documented Robert Ballard’s quest to find the Titanic, and supported Jane Goodall’s study of chimpanzee behavior. We support critical projects like the Big Cats Initiative, which has helped stop more than 2,600 big cat mortalities in the wild, and the Pristine Seas project, which has helped protect more than 5.2 million square kilometers of the ocean’s last wild places. And with our planet’s future at stake, we’re focused on the guardians of that future: our children. Our education programs give teachers the tools they need to engage students of all ages, reveal our interconnected world, and inspire new generations of responsible citizens, explorers, and changemakers.
