THE GREAT NATURE PROJECT
This week we’d like to encourage you to join the us in The Great Nature Project and for a #GreatNature Walk .
National Geographic Kids is working this week (September 21 – 28) to set a Genesi World Record for the largest online photo album of animals and we think this is a great way to get kids outside and involved with photography.
To participate, slimily take a picture of an animal and hashtag it on Instagram using #greatnature and #animal.

ABOUT THE GREAT NATURE PROJECT
The National Geographic Society, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, is urging everyone to get off the couch and go outside to explore — and celebrate — nature, whether in their own backyard, a local park or anywhere that nature thrives. From Sept. 21-29, 2013, National Geographic invites the whole world to take part in the Great Nature Project, an unprecedented attempt to capture and appreciate Earth’s biodiversity.
How can you participate? Anyone with a camera or camera phone is encouraged to take photos of any plants or animals they come across and share them with the world by uploading them to various social media platforms, including Twitter, Instagram and Flickr, using the hashtag #GreatNature. The uploaded, tagged photos will be aggregated on greatnatureproject.org, where visitors to the website can view the images and take advantage of opportunities to engage deeper and learn more about the world’s biodiversity through educational and scientific resources.
As part of the Great Nature Project, National Geographic Kids is attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the largest online photo album of animals by collecting more than 100,000 animal images. Any photo of an animal uploaded and then shared with Great Nature Project with the addition of the hashtag #animal will be counted toward the record.
So remember, you have through September 29, 2013 to upload your nature and animal pics to Twitter, Instagram and Flickr using the #GreatNature hashtag and #animal where applicable.
