On View Through February 25, 2018: National Geographic Photo Ark Project at the LA Zoo

From now until February 25, Los Angeles Zoo guests can view selections from the ambitious National Geographic Photo Ark project.
Feb2018-LAZooFounded by National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore, the Photo Ark aims to document every species in the world's zoos and wildlife sanctuaries and inspire people to help protect animals for future generations. This exhibition is organized by the National Geographic Society and Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

Sartore has worked in more than 250 zoos, aquariums, and animal rescue centers around the world on his quest to build the exhibition. "I hope when [visitors] look at the Photo Ark kiosks here at the L.A. Zoo, they see that a lot of conservation work [is] being done," states Sartore.

"Saving species requires everyone to be engaged and make use of every tool available," explains John R. Lewis, L.A. Zoo Director. "It has often been said that we will only preserve what we love and Joel's beautiful portraits inspire compassion, awe, and appreciation for each individual animal. It is my belief that the National Geographic Photo Ark will galvanize people to save animals by supporting individuals and institutions involved in species conservation."

The Photo Ark exhibition is traveling to zoos and institutions around the world to raise awareness of the project's mission, which is further explored in the new National Geographic book, The Photo Ark, and a children's book, Animal Ark, both available at the L.A. Zoo gift shop. Fans of the exhibit are also invited to join the conversation on social media with #SaveTogether and learn more about how to get involved with the project at NatGeoPhotoArk.org

The National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition is included with the purchase of a general admission ticket or free with GLAZA membership. Learn more at www.lazoo.org/photoark To find out more about the National Geographic Society or the LA Zoo, visit www.nationalgeographic.org http://www.lazoo.org
