Overview

This lush book of photography represents National Geographic's Photo Ark, a major cross-platform initiative and lifelong project by photographer Joel Sartore to take portraits of the world's animals -- especially those that are endangered. His powerful message, conveyed with humor, compassion, and art: to know these animals is to save them.

Sartore intends to photograph every animal in captivity in the world. He is circling the globe, visiting zoos and wildlife rescue centers to create studio portraits of 12,000 species, with an emphasis on those facing extinction. He has photographed more than 6,000 already and now, thanks to a multi-year partnership with National Geographic, he may reach his goal. This book showcases his animal portraits: from tiny to mammoth, from the Florida grasshopper sparrow to the greater one-horned rhinoceros. Paired with the eloquent prose of veteran wildlife writer Douglas Chadwick, this book presents a thought-provoking argument for saving all the species of our planet.

    Arks

    What a spectacular book! All of us who love animals will rejoice to have copies; all of those ignoring extinctions should have copies. This book is rightly named an ARK; we can only hope it rescues endangered animals as the original Ark is said to have done.

    Stunning!

    So difficult to face that we are losing so many of these amazing creatures. I am still deliberating how to explain that to my grandchildren. They love this book.
