Celebrating National Geographic’s Groundbreaking 125 Years

On January 13, 2013, the National Geographic Society will celebrate its 125th anniversary. Though it’s best known for its stunning wildlife photography, National Geographic is, more importantly, a leading proponent of environmental and historical conservation. This anniversary they are reaffirming their role as the the ones at the forefront of discovery and adventure. They’re calling this exciting chapter: The New Age of Exploration.
