Building the Ark

Photo by Joel Sartore


Naples Zoo has debuted the “National Geographic Photo Ark Traveling Exhibit,” 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.

The Photo Ark — on display until April 19, 2020 —  is a compelling and visually powerful project that aims to photograph species before it is too late.

Photo Ark founder Joel Sartore has photographed more than 9,000 species around the world as part of a multiyear effort to document every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

In what will be the largest single archive of studio-quality photographs of biodiversity ever, the Photo Ark continues to move toward its goal of documenting 12,000 species in captivity, thanks in part to Mr. Sartore’s enduring relationships with many of the world’s zoos and aquariums.
