National Geographic Photo Ark grand opening
April 20, 2017
Come face-to-face with the animals of the National Geographic Photo Ark, featuring large-format images taken by Nat Geo photographer Joel Sartore.
The interaction between animals and their environments is the engine that keeps the planet healthy for all of us. But for many species, time is running out. When you remove one, it affects us all.
The National Geographic Photo Ark is a multiyear effort to raise awareness of and find solutions to some of the most pressing issues affecting wildlife and their habitats. The Photo Ark’s three-pronged approach harnesses the power of National Geographic’s photography and the bold ideas of our explorers. Led by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, the project aims to document every species currently held in zoos, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.
