The National Geographic Society is an impact-driven global nonprofit that invests in bold people and transformative ideas. We chase the big questions, challenge accepted beliefs, and push the boundaries of knowledge about our world in order to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for all. Our ultimate goal is a planet in balance, one that provides for humanity and the multitude of other species with which we share the Earth. To achieve our ambitious goal, we focus our efforts across the three areas where we have the greatest impact: helping to save threatened wildlife, working to preserve our changing planet, and investigating our human journey.
