The National Geographic Photo Ark is an ambitious project committed to documenting every species living in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries—inspiring people not just to care, but also to help protect these animals for future generations. This traveling exhibition features the work of National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore, highlighting more than 50 of Sartore’s most compelling images to provide visitors with the unique opportunity to come face to face with animals from the National Geographic Photo Ark.
The National Geographic Photo Ark is a compelling and visually powerful project that aims to photograph species, creating an archival record for generations to come. In addition, this project is a hopeful platform for conservation and shines a light on individuals and organizations working to preserve species around the world.
