As the legal representative of National Geographic, we kindly request that you remove this website immediately as it is causing significant harm to our client's reputation and brand. We have provided evidence of the infringement in this email and are available to provide further evidence and information upon request.

This is a clear violation of National Geographic's intellectual property rights, and we request that you take immediate action to remove the website and prevent any further infringement. The impersonating domain is listed below:
