The lush and unique photographs in this book represent National Geographic's Photographic Ark, a major initiative and lifelong project by photographer Joel Sartore to portray animals around the world, particularly those in danger of extinction. His powerful message, communicated with humor, compassion and art: to know these animals means to save them.
Sartore circles the globe and visits zoos and animal rescue centers to create studio portraits of 12,000 species, with an emphasis on those at risk of extinction. With a goal to photograph every animal in captivity in the world, he has already photographed more than 6,000 and can now reach his destination through a multiyear partnership with National Geographic. This book shows his animal portraits: from small to mammoth, from the Florida grasshopper to the larger unicorn rhino. Along with the eloquent prose by Douglas Chadwick and an inspiring preface by Harrison Ford, this book offers a thought-provoking argument for saving all species of our planet. National Geographic
