SEPTEMBER ON NATGEO FAMILY: DISCOVER THE INCREDIBLE TREES AROUND THE WORLD THAT GROW OUT OF LAKES AND ARE USED AS POSTBOXES!

Also on the platform this month: would you be brave enough to explore the world’s longest underwater cave? Swim the 215-mile stretch in the waters of Mexico with NatGeo Family’s video

In May 2020, National Geographic launched NATGEO FAMILY – a one-stop shop for anyone looking for enriching ways to entertain and engage families at home. Working closely with a number of incredible National Geographic Explorers, the online hub brings the ‘wow’ and ‘wonder’ of Nat Geo into the home. 

As a centralised digital resource, the platform provides practical, inspiring and entertaining content designed to keep families connected to the natural world and the science behind it. And as we enter the summer holidays, we’ve rounded up the top activities and inspiration on the platform this month. 

To kick us off this September, we have the perfect array of content to get you in the Back to School mindset and help get your kids equipped with a load of fun facts to share with their friends! 

On NatGeo Family this month, with Autumn just around the corner, take a look at 19 of the world’s most fascinating trees, from the French trees that have been hollowed out to house chapels, to the huge cotton tree that stands right in the middle of traffic in Sierra Leone’s capital city, to what is believed to be the world’s oldest tree – over 2,000 years old! These majestic organisms have religious, scientific, literary and cultural significance in the places they live – and even serve as pilgrimage sights to people around the world. Check out the stunning images on the platform HERE.
