"Photo Ark" is a biodiversity conservation effort founded by the well-known photographer Joel Sartore and supported by National Geographic. Joel Sartore has made it his life’s work to produce a visual ark documenting all animal species in human care. To date, he has completed intimate portraits of more than 9,000 species in his “Photo Ark” archive. His artistic and stunningly beautiful close-ups on a plain black or white background place a special focus on each animal. They emphasise the beauty, uniqueness and fragility of each species and highlight the importance of saving animals in order to preserve our plant. Indeed, Joel Sartore is certain of one thing: “We only protect what we love.”
