The National Geographic Society has been inspiring people to care about the planet since 1888. It is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. Its interests include geography, archaeology and natural science, and the promotion of environmental and historical conservation.
The magazine is the official journal of the National Geographic Society, one of the world's largest nonprofit educational and scientific organizations 'for the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge.' Since 1888, the Society has supported more than 9,000 explorations and research projects, adding to our knowledge of earth, sea, and sky. Filled with breathtaking photography and riveting articles, each issue is as exciting and captivating as life itself. Series of articles were included focusing on the history and varied uses of specific products such as a single metal, gem, food crop, or agricultural product, or an archaeological discovery.
Each issue of National Geographic fires the imaginations of readers, taking them on a journey that's always enlightening, often surprising, and unfailingly fascinating. National Geographic's editors, journalists, and photographers are the world's best storytellers.
