The National Geographic Society is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization that pushes the boundaries of exploration to further their understanding of their planet and empower us all to generate solutions for a more sustainable future. For almost 130 years, they’ve funded groundbreaking scientists and explorers and shared their findings with the world. They 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.  Their explorers continue to push the boundaries of knowledge. To date, they’ve given out more than 13,000 grants to scientists and conservationists whose work is making a significant difference in the world. They 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 their planet’s future at stake, they’re focused on the guardians of that future: their children. Their education programs give teachers the tools they need to engage students of all ages, reveal their interconnected world, and inspire new generations of responsible citizens, explorers, and changemakers.
