The National Geographic Photo Ar a project aimed to document all 12,000 species in captivity
The National Geographic Photo Ark. Led by world-renowned photographer Joel Sartore, the project aims to document all 12,000 species in captivity—many of which are endangered. Sartore’s portraits of wildlife worth saving have been projected around the world on landmarks like the Empire State Building, U.N. headquarters, and even the Vatican. His work has even inspired an increase in federal funding for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect an endangered Florida bird. But time is running out for some of these animals. See how we can make a difference together.
