“Environmental problems unite everyone, regardless of nationality, language, religion and race for the common goal – protection of nature.
By highlighting natural calamities, global warming, atmosphere pollution, risk of extermination of different fauna species and other environmental problems, the National Geographic Magazine contributes to protection of the environment and our plant.
Today Azerbaijan is a regional leader for its environmental initiatives.
