ScienceBlogs and National Geographic

Announced today:

Dear Readers,

It is our great pleasure to bring you news of an exciting new partnership, starting today, between ScienceBlogs and National Geographic.

ScienceBlogs and National Geographic have at their cores the same ultimate mission: to cultivate widespread interest in science and the natural world. Starting today, we will work together to advance this common mission through new content, applications, and initiatives. We will bring acclaimed voices from National Geographic into our rich discussion on ScienceBlogs, and National Geographic will invite their worldwide audience to join the conversation. Our bloggers will gain new audiences and maybe even a few SciBlings...

Over the next few days, weeks, and months you will start to see the fruits of the SB-NG partnership take shape here on SB and on We hope you'll share with us your ideas and feedback for how we can make this partnership as valuable as possible for you.

ScienceBlogs and our 137 bloggers around the world strive to continually raise the bar of online science communication, and we are thrilled to be taking the next step with National Geographic. We look forward to bringing this new dimension to your ScienceBlogs experience.

Thank you for being a part of our community!

I've been a huge fan of The National Geographic for many years -- I have fond memories of their tv specials when I was a kid, particularly the Jacques Cousteau series. We also get the magazine every month at home, although the kids usually get a hold of it before I get much of a chance to read it. I look forward to seeing how this collaboration develops and evolves.

The NG web site is here, their blogging community and, of course, their library.

I grew up reading National Geographic so this is good, very good.
