National Geographic has called American Prairie “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 American Prairie Founder Sean Gerrity a National Geographic Fellow. American Prairie Wildlife Restoration Manager Daniel Kinka served as a National Geographic Technology Fellow from 2018 to 2019. 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. American Prairie has 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 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.
