Recently, I saw an exhibit called “Rare” at our Museum of Natural History.  The exhibit featured photographer Joel Sartore’s work documenting endangered animals across the globe.  His beautiful and sensitive photographs are now in a new project called “Photo Ark.”

Here is a link to a video showing how the work is accomplished.

“Photo Ark is a multiyear 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 has captured portraits of more than 5,000 creatures to date, with more to come. Many of the animals live in the world’s zoos and aquariums, institutions dedicated to preserving and caring for species of all kinds. This exhibition features many

iconic images and allows visitors to follow Sartore around the world on this exciting and important project.”
