Half a Million Strong on Facebook


For an organization that’s all about inspiring people to care about the planet, having half a million Facebook fans is gratifying. Well, I imagine it would be … but we’re about 100 fans short: As I post this, the tally stands at 499,889. Won’t you help put National Geographic over the top?

You’ll find us right here.

If we’re already above the half-million mark by the time you see this, please become a fan anyway. And if you’re already a fan, won’t you persuade a friend to become one, too, so we can reach a million?
