World-renowned National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore considers himself to be an animal ambassador, a voice for the voiceless – and he is. As the driving force behind National Geographic’s Photo Ark, Joel is on a quest to visually document our world’s animals before it’s too late. Since 2006, he has photographed more than 6,500 species as he traveled to zoos, aquariums, wildlife centers and private facilities to reveal the world’s most fragile biodiversity and speak about the significance of saving all wildlife. His breathtaking portraits inspire people to care about and help save these species while there’s still time.
Beginning September 12, Oklahoma City Zoo guests can view Joel’s photographs in person when they visit the ZooZeum, the Zoo’s historical museum located by the elephant habitat. The Zoo will be showcasing nearly 40 photos from the Photo Ark project through mid-December. Zoo admission is required to visit the ZooZeum.
