Per ardua ad astra

In 1886 33 Geographers, Natural Scientists, World Travelers, Mathematicians, Archaeologists, and other worthy and recognized men decided to form an alliance. They would produce a journal to explain their findings, making them available to all learned folk. Science on parade.

They ratified their ambitious resolution on January 27, 1888, and the National Geographic Society was founded. An astounding vision these men shared, and their accomplishment stands today. Without it, how would people find out about Rhinos? We do what We can, but Rhinos admit more is always both possible and desireable.

So. Hooray for them, and the legacy they created together. Thank you.
