National Geographic

The National Geographic Society is one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in the world. It provides wide ranging information about geography, archaeology, natural science, environmental and historical conservation, and world culture and history.

The National Geographic website has something to offer all age groups.

Of particular note are the geography quizes which are updated daily and record scores to enable competition.

There are also daily news updates, photographs and videos and many articles and quizes covering a wide range of topics including animals, science, health, astronomy, geography, history, environment, people, culture and much more.

Karen: Thank you for promoting geography. When one looks at today's issues confronting our communities and our world, including climate change, political instability, biodiversity loss, sustainable agriculture and tourism, natural hazards, urban sprawl, human health, energy, and more, I cannot think of a more relevant subject. And today's geotechnologies make it a high-tech discipline.
