Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

—Chief Seattle

During the past couple of years, our teams of digital journalists have produced exciting and educational photo-documentary expeditions that connect online viewers to unique wilderness areas around the world.

Our stories have been inspired, in part, by talented nature and wilderness photographers whose extraordinary images, along with their commitment to conservation, have served to inspire others to protect special wilderness areas and threatened species.

Now, it's your turn. With the introduction of the Journeys Corps of Storytellers, you can share your own stories about your personal connection to nature and wilderness. Whether your stories take place in your community or involve travel and adventure in faraway lands, One World Journeys is a place to share and become connected to others who share your passion for our planet.

Together, we'll build the largest collection of stories on the Internet about the natural world—stories by people like you that demonstrate how all things are bound together and that all things do, indeed, connect.

Very truly yours,

Russell Sparkman
