Add Your Snapshot to a Global Album of Earth’s Biodiversity

Google+ Hangout: Global Snapshot of the World’s Plants, Animals

For 125 years, National Geographic has continued to share its never-ending curiosity about the world and all that is in it.

Now we’re handing over the role of photographer and explorer to you.

The Great Nature Project invites people of every age and from every continent to add to a growing album of plant and animal photos. See it, snap it and upload it with the hashtag #GreatNature to any photo sharing site like Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, or National Geographic Your Shot. By using the hashtag #animal you’ll also help us win a Guinness World Records® title for the largest online animal photo album.

We’re celebrating The Great Nature Project and biodiversity all over the world by bringing together four explorers to share stories about their unique experiences with nature- everything from swimming with giant Manta rays to having a life-long friendship with a 800-pound grizzly bear.

Be part of the conversation and join our LIVE Hangout on Air with NG photographer Joel Sartore, “Queen of the Manta rays” Andrea Marshall, tiger conservationist Krithi Karanth and naturalist and champion for bears Casey Anderson.

Send in your questions and they may be asked on air. You may even be invited to appear on-screen and ask your question live. Submit your questions by…
