  1. National Geographic is a magazine that uses stunning photographs to deliver the world directly to their readers. The magazine brings awareness to environmental concerns, cultural diversity, and phenomena of the natural world through vivid colors and hard facts. Scientists, photojournalists, and explorers collaborate to promote education on how to better conserve and protect the habitats of earth. They have created a presence on a wide variety of platforms because it is important to National Geographic to get this message out to all people.
  2. One of those platforms is their website. It has articles, videos, and many more resources for readers to learn more about the environment, other cultures, and wildlife. This medium is for people who desire a more in-depth and extensive understanding of National Geographic's mission.
  3. National Geographic is also on Instagram. Their account has 67 million followers. It is perfect for people who love the exotic photographs that National Geographic is so widely-known for, and gives little tidbits of information that do not overwhelm the viewer.
  4. Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley). How is life in a remote village in Pakistan’s Karakoram mountains, near the border with Afghanistan? Last summer, I spent a couple of weeks there with my family; you can read my story titled “Home on the Range" in the latest National Geographic magazine. Here, a bride awaits the arrival of her husband. For years, marriages in this region had been arranged by the bride’s and groom’s parents. Today, many couples meet on social media sites or while at university and refer with pride to their bonds as “arranged love marriages”.

  5. Photo @ladzinski / A young #lion cub hiding in a #shepardsTree waiting for mom to show up, hopefully with a meal. The first few months for new born lions is the most dangerous. This cub, along with his siblings, are too young to bring back to the pride, there is a risk they could be accidentally killed by the family. It's moms responsibility to hide them from predators, hunt and get them strong in the meantime. #kalahari

A view of Cerro Corcovado, part of the system of 11m acres committed by @tompkins_conservation and President Bachelet to become national parks in Chile. The protected acreage would be three times the size of Yellowstone National Park and Yosemite National Park combined. #onassignment

  7. Another channel people have access to is National Geographic's Youtube channel. The videos make the information easily accessible. Lengths of the videos vary from short, one-minute clips to hour-long videos. Regardless of the length, the videos are shot documentary style with very specific content. This form of education is for visual learners who want a more detailed description of the information.

  10. Another social media account is the National Geographic Facebook page. It has a combination of videos and articles that are linked to their website. This gives people the option to watch a short clip or read a lengthy article that can provide a more thorough commentary.
