About 150 miles away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans’ biggest party of the year, there is another indigenous Mardi Gras celebration in Louisiana’s Cajun country. What if thousands of years of your culture, your stories, your identity were reduced to ashes? There’s nothing between me and complete corporeal implosion but a 3 inch thick dome of plexiglass. In a place where population growth is moving incredibly fast, added pressure on farmers in India in the wake of crushing debt and failed crops calls for a new agricultural approach. Genetic modification and organic farming present promising solutions.

Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi. With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa.
I’m writing this from a cafe in San Francisco, sipping on a coffee that I bought for the price of a nice breakfast in Mexico. When I meet people who know I’m on Fulbright and they ask me what I’m researching, I say that I’m looking at the processes of urban development on the outskirts of Mexico City. I lived here in the Bay Area for much of my time in college, and in San Francisco for about two years after. In some ways, then, it’s taken being back here to remind myself what I’ve been doing there.

Every year we name a new class of emerging explorers, highlighting people early in their careers making a difference and pushing the boundaries of knowledge and exploration. A nuclear innovator, a memory manipulator, and an archaeologist in wartorn Syria are just a few of this year's new additions to the family of National Geographic explorers. The first emerging explorers were named in 2004, and since then more than a hundred researchers and adventurers have been awarded the title. Lee Berger's discovery of Homo naledi is the latest in a long chain of breakthroughs made by this esteemed group of researchers, adventurers, and conservationists. Wherever you come from, wherever you are in the world, and whatever your topic of research, the National Geographic Society is interested in helping you to increase human understanding of the world and all that's in it. The Committee for Research and Exploration provides research grants focused on cultivating scientists, explorers, and conservationists.

She has just returned to Madagascar a second time and is preparing for another year of fieldwork.
What goes through the mind of a submarine pilot two thousand feet below the surface of the ocean? Instead, it was simply a continuation of business-as-usual, another day in a life where the sea gives only to the extent that one shows up. This is understandable, since it has been largely eradicated from the realities of the 21st century, save for a very few remote pockets on the globe. Posters and commenters are required to observe National Geographic's community rules and other terms of service. To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016. I ordered the drink in English, a language which at least 75% of the people I’ve overheard talking on the street seem to speak.

As of Sunday, the 21st, my Fulbright – National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship has come to an end.
Well maybe that’s not “good” news, exactly: it means there’s lots of editing, writing and thinking to be done, but it also means that, after soaking up some of the comforts of my country, I’ll have some more time—a few more months—to continue working and living there. When I’ve been asked, in more general language, what I’m “doing in Mexico,” I tend to cut to the chase and say that I walk around different suburbs and make pictures of buildings and try to talk to people. Thanks to people like Paul Groth, Janet Delaney, Richard Walker, Matthew Coolidge, countless friends, everyone who I worked video production with, and especially the folks who ran the bike workshop in West Berkeley, I was inspired to walk and bike more miles of this metropolis than I’ll probably ever remember. That reading, that exploring of the city is a pleasure, like reading a novel so often is for me.
As a Fulbright-National Geographic Fellow, he will travel through Russia and Kazakhstan where farmers are working to rebuild their cattle industries. She is a designer, researcher, and educator whose project gives voice to the communities of the Ciliwung River through an interactive website, mapping stories that expose the relationships between urbanism, ecology, and politics.

Apply for a grant for your own research, and get to know some of our most dynamic explorers. We are also the home of several explorers-in-residence, leaders in their fields with a legacy of tireless work and extraordinary impact. Martin Gonzalez, son of one of the last speakers and full-blooded Yaghan, Ursula Calderon, has a simple answer. So on this year’s Christmas day, everyone showed up as they did yesterday, as they will tomorrow, and as they will for every other day of the year.
So I was a bit surprised when someone told me that east of where I was doing fieldwork in northern Madagascar, a village was being hit with a deadly plague outbreak. They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society.
This is the sad news, at least for me, and perhaps, hopefully, for any of you who have been following along with my Instagram and this blog.
I’m immensely excited to shoot some of the few places I feel are important to capture to give a sense of the overall scope of suburban sprawl in the city, and that have so far evaded me.
Compared to academic friends of mine that, say, inject genes in yeast cells or research new materials for use by NASA, it feels pretty basic.
In a region with such a commitment to preservation and such pride in history, the past is present here—scenes from old films, photographs and writings are easily found again. And I can’t think of a better place within which to immerse myself in order to edit the project’s 11,000 (and counting) photos, hours of videos and so far innumerable vague ideas. But, as I hope to have already shared, and hope to continue to express in the website documenting the project that I’m currently working on, what I’ve learned through that process is more than I ever could have hoped for.
Here, like in Mexico City, the future seems to be a mix of growth in old city centers and, less-visibly but in greater magnitude, on the city’s oft-forgotten fringes.
But, like you, I won’t read every book, and besides, I’ve often enjoyed an intelligent review, or a friend’s animated description more than the thing itself. For those that miss it, the talks will be recorded and made available online, so you’ll all be able to see the photos and video that provide a counterpoint to this wall of text.
Most of all, here I learned that, if you learn a bit of the grammar of the built environment and slow down to read it, a city is an open book, a public record of its own creation and the interceding time between that moment and one’s experiencing it. So in the meantime, I hope you’ll settle for my documentation of the city, my retelling of it, as I continue to post to this blog and as I launch my project website in earnest this summer.
