What is ‘The Meaning of North’? Read all about the incredible ecosystem of Franz Josef Land in the August issue of @natgeo. The lonely archipelago lies 800 miles north of the arctic circle in Russia’s Barents Sea and stands as a barometer for climate change and our impacts both above and below the surface.

There are different stages to the shark fin trade, weather you are the one eating shark fin soup, making it, or you’re the fisherman being seduced by the money of a buyer to kill sharks, action by anyone within these levels against the trade can and will help stop this barbaric delicacy.
About 73 million sharks are slaughtered yearly to satisfy the growing demand for shark fin soup in Asia — disrupting the fragile balance of marine ecosystems. We need shark in our ocean and not on our plates. When the buying stops, the killing can, too.

With less than 4,000 left in the wild, tigers are in real danger of extinction. You can make a difference in saving tigers.
- Share your love of tigers and spread the word about the threats they face.
- Do not purchase products that put tigers at risk and encourage others not to, either.
- Support programs like the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy that fund conservation work to help save tigers.
