HRH The Duke of Sussex has partnered with National Geographic to become guest editor of the National Geographic Instagram account on Monday September 30th, as people from all over the world are encouraged to ‘look up” and share the beauty of trees.
Working with Susan Goldberg, editorial director of National Geographic Partners and editor in chief of National Geographic magazine, The Duke of Sussex will take control of the Nat Geo Instagram account, which reaches over 123 million followers, to curate a new set of beautiful images of forest canopies, all taken by National Geographic photographers.
This partnership celebrates the beauty and significant environmental importance of conservation, as two more national parks are created as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy campaign, during Prince Harry’s royal tour in Southern Africa.
Susan Goldberg said:
“We are delighted to partner with The Duke of Sussex to raise awareness about the importance of preserving and restoring indigenous forests. It is now more important than ever to encourage the conservation of our natural world, and we hope this partnership will help shine a light on this key issue needed to maintain a healthy planet.”
This partnership also complements the National Geographic Society’s long history of celebrating and protecting trees and their habitats.
“Looking Up” celebrates the beauty of trees and the important role they play in the earth’s eco-system. It highlights the symbiotic relationship humans and wildlife have with the trees that are fundament to our survival.
