About this Exhibition

Photo Ark is a multi-year National Geographic project with a simple goal—to create portraits of the world's species before they disappear and to inspire people to care. Each image is a visual connection between the animals and people who can help protect them.

With ingenuity and wit, National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore is creating portraits with a goal of documenting 20,000 species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Sartore has photographed more than 12,000 creatures to date! Many of the animals live in the world's zoos and aquariums—among the last places on Earth dedicated to ensuring their survival. This exhibition features many iconic images and allows visitors to follow Sartore around the world on this exciting and important project.

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:

Joel Sartore is a photographer, speaker, author, teacher, conservationist, 24-year contributor to National Geographic magazine, and a National Geographic Fellow. He has traveled to every continent and specializes in documenting endangered species and landscapes. Simply put, he is on a mission to document endangered species to show a world worth saving. “Every year I see more habitat loss, more species consumed for food, medicine or simply decoration,” says Sartore. “The Photo Ark was born out of desperation to halt, or at least slow, the loss of global biodiversity.”
