Languages at Risk map – Tap on the map to see language “hotspots”, identified by linguists as regions with high linguistic diversity, severe endangerment, and lack of documentation.

National Geographic magazine has a long tradition of combining on-the-ground reporting with award-winning photography to inform people about life on our planet.
The magazine is the official journal of the National Geographic Society, one of the world’s largest nonprofit education and scientific organizations. As we've come to depend on a handful of commercial varieties of fruits and vegetables, thousands of heirloom varieties have disappeared. This is an unofficial Tumblr dedicated to the great organization that is National Geographic. Photograph by Wai Chee Wong, Your ShotMost people know about the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, but only a few are lucky to discover the wonder near Sol Duc.
As infants, Ramon and Eurides looked so much alike that their mother gave them name bracelets so she wouldn’t get confused and feed the same child twice. When Loretta was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, Lorraine was in the doctor’s office with her. Jessica and Jackie Whited, 20, both go to the University of Akron, share the same friends and jobs, and even teach Sunday school together. When Christopher Griffin got the number two tattooed on his wrist as a symbol of being a twin, he thought his brother Cole would get a matching tattoo. A life cycle assessment (LCA) is an attempt to capture and measure all the carbon emissions associated with a product from "cradle to grave"—from the sourcing of its raw materials all the way through its manufacture, use, and disposal. The purpose of performing an LCA for a product is to understand where the carbon emissions in its production come from. The National Geographic Society initiated an LCA on the National Geographic magazine (NGM) late in 2008, completing the study in June 2009.
To be comprehensive, the LCA had to look into all the processes involved with producing a story and a physical magazine including (floor space and energy to maintain staffs for) story development, editing, advertising and sales, forestry management and harvesting, chemical suppliers, paper manufacturing, transportation to the printing facility, printing and binding, distribution by truck, rail and the Postal Services into the home, and waste services. There is not yet a widely accepted international protocol for performing such a thorough LCA, so in partnership with our primary suppliers of paper, printing services and distribution, we hired a certified third-party LCA practitioner [Harmony Environmental] to guide us through the process.


We believe that our final report is the most thorough and comprehensive LCA yet done on a magazine.
The chart below shows the GWP breakdown by GHG and by percentage of recycled fiber content. The next step we are taking in this process is to develop a list of options to try to reduce our carbon footprint, and then to develop a strategy for implementing those that are practical and effective.
When the Rapanui – Easter Island’s indigenous population – moved their legendary statues of volcanic rock in to place centuries ago, they did it without wheels or draft animals. Violent storms can kill people and animals, destroy crops and property, flood roads and towns.
Judson reports on the fascinating research being performed in this topsy-turvy world, where weird microbes manage to thrive in the volcano’s hot, dry soil. During Russia’s famously short summers, its citizens flee the cities for dachas, summer cottages far different from the drab apartment buildings of Moscow or St. Published in English and 33 local-language editions, the magazine has a global circulation of around 8 million. It's hard to know exactly how many have been lost over the past century, but a study conducted in 1983 by the Rural Advancement Foundation International gave a clue to the scope of the problem.
Today at age 34, the twins are next-door neighbors in Florida, living in identical custom-built houses. The twins dressed identically save for wristwatches, which could be secretly switched before a test. When they were younger, nail polish distinguished them—Jessica wore purple and Jackie wore pink. When teachers tried to move Carly up to a more advanced swimming class, Lily protested: She didn’t want to be left behind.
Determining as accurately as possible the total emissions associated with the creation, use, and disposal of a product helps to identify where carbon reduction is needed most urgently or would be most effective. The goal was to identify the carbon emissions of creating the magazine content, as well as the emissions of our supply chain of vendors and service providers that all factor into the creation and delivery of a physical magazine to our members and the marketplace and finally, disposal of the magazine. How this was done over distances as long as 11 miles has been one of the island’s persistent mysteries. Yet, they give, too, delivering rain to parched earth, wind to turbines and nitrogen to the soil. By the next century nearly half of the 7,000 languages spoken on earth will likely disappear. Peter captures the microbiologists at work as they attempt to unlock the mystery of these organisms in one of the most extreme places on the planet.


It is sent out each month to National Geographic members and is available on newsstands for $5.99 a copy. Marta depicts finely detailed faces, while Emma prefers more expansive images: the sky, the rain, objects in motion. Even when one twin doesn’t know what the other twin has selected, they typically want to buy the same clothes. They look so alike that their boss at McDonald’s gets confused, but their personalities aren’t identical. A comprehensive overview of the LCA can be found in the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment. Last year, archaeologists Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo, supported by a National Geographic grant, demonstrated how the statues could have been “walked” in to place by as few as 18 people. To document these awe-inspiring tempests, landscape photographer Mitch Dobrowner teamed with renowned storm chaser Roger Hill, stalking some 40,000 miles, for three years. Russ Rymer journeyed to the remote Republic of Tuva in Russia, to the northeasternmost hamlets of India and to the Sonoran desert of Mexico to learn how the languages of Tuvan, Aka and Seri can express concepts that Russian, Hindi, and Spanish cannot. Single copies can be ordered by calling (800) NGS-LINE, also the number to call for membership to the Society.
National Geographic magazine’s editor for mission projects, Hannah Bloch, delves into the history and culture of the island, which is both challenged and invigorated by the effects of tourism. Lynn Johnson’s photographs manage to meet a remarkable challenge: How does one visualize a story about the spoken word?
Yet, whatever the style of the dacha, it’s a place to relax, ponder life, party, cherish the company of family and friends, reconnect with the soil and restore one’s soul. The guests became so alarmed at how quickly Jeff moved in and out of the kitchen that they told him to slow down, not realizing more than one man was on the job. They go to different Ohio colleges but have a daily reminder of each other: Each has the other’s name tattooed on his inner lip. The survey, which included 66 crops, found that about 93 percent of the varieties had gone extinct.
