About the Great Nature Project

The Great Nature Project

The Great Nature Project is a worldwide celebration of our planet’s natural wonders and a huge scientific undertaking to document the Earth’s incredible biodiversity. People of all ages, from all corners of the world, are invited to help National Geographic contribute to our understanding of the diverse life on our planet.

Whether you’re hiking or just enjoying your lunch break, we encourage you to look for living organisms, snap pictures of those organisms, and upload the pictures to the Great Nature Project website. By taking these simple steps to participate, you can help National Geographic create a global snapshot of the world’s amazing array of life.

The Great Nature Project is one of the largest initiatives National Geographic has ever created, but we need your help to pull it off. So get outside, explore, connect, and join us for a project as big as the world itself.
