Naples Zoo is excited to welcome National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore for an evening presentation at The Naples Players on Tuesday, March 24th at 7:00 pm (Blackburn Hall, Sugden Theater).

The presentation will feature National Geographic’s Photo Ark. The National Geographic Photo Ark is “using the power of photography to inspire people to help save species at risk before it’s too late.” Photo Ark founder Joel Sartore has photographed more than 9,000 species around the world as part of a multiyear effort to document every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

Sartore is on a mission to capture portraits of the world’s species before they disappear. With ingenuity, wit and a serious Midwestern work ethic, Sartore has created the Photo Ark project, the largest archive of its kind with more than 9,000 images and counting. Hear about his comical mishaps, endearing encounters and personal stories while documenting a world worth saving.
