The National Geographic Photo Ark

On 19 April 2018 I took this photo of these little rascals tickling the unsuspecting Chimp. This is a terrific exhibit that will dovetail with the Woodland Park Zoo opening the brand new Endangered Species & Illegal Wildlife Trade exhibit on 5 May 2018. The exhibit is “Assam Rhino Reserve” allowing guests to learn about conservation, preservation and how to actully help all our critter pals. #Rhinolookout

Led by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, the National Geographic Photo Ark project aims to document every species living in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. Open your eyes to the beauty and wonder we can #SaveTogether as you take in 56 stunning animal portraits displayed across Woodland Park Zoo. Free with zoo admission or membership.
National Geographic is showcasing this project in a traveling outdoor photo exhibition making its way to Woodland Park Zoo, Apr. 20 – Oct. 8, 2018.
This exhibition is organized by the National Geographic Society and Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. It is free with zoo admission or membership.

“The National Geographic Photo Ark is a compelling and visually powerful project that aims to photograph rare and endangered species before it is too late. In addition to creating an archival record for generations to come, this project is a hopeful platform for conservation and shines a light on individuals and organizations working to preserve species around the world.” Woodland Park Zoo website.
