Tools for Drawing People In

For more than 130 years, the National Geographic Society has pushed the boundaries of science by engaging the average citizen in a deeper understanding of the planet. Two Nat Geo fellows discuss the tools and strategies they're using to connect people to their environments. Renowned animal photographer Joel Sartore explains The Photo Ark, a long-term photo project to document all the animal species in the world. And conservation researcher Scott Loarie talks about iNaturalist, his citizen science app and social network. Both projects share the goal of engaging the public in preserving our planet’s species and habitat.
