National Geographic has called American Prairie Reserve “one of the most ambitious conservation projects in American history” and supports our efforts in many ways. We feel fortunate to have the endorsement of one of the most trusted media brands in the world and we strongly believe in National Geographic’s mission: to inspire people to care about the planet.
In 2012, the organization named Sean Gerrity, APR’s Founder, a National Geographic Fellow. The National Geographic Fellows Program was established to help researchers and other specialists define and develop outstanding special projects. In 2010, National Geographic produced an hour-long special, called American Serengeti, drawing worldwide attention to the Montana plains. In 2018, the organization named Daniel Kinka, APR's Wildlife Restoration Manager, a National Geographic Technology Fellow. American Prairie Reserve has also been featured on National Geographic’s Wild Chronicles series, the Global Action Atlas and the Weekend Radio program, and has hosted the Student Expeditions program. American Prairie Reserve also is a partner in National Geographic's Last Wild Places initiative, which aims to help protect the natural wonders that allow people and wildlife to thrive.
