TREES EXHIBIT: THE PHOTO ARK
Half of all the species on Earth could be headed irreversibly toward extinction by 2100. Not if Joel Sartore can help it. That’s the idea behind the Photo Ark project and TREES exhibit: getting the public to look these creatures in the eye, and care enough to save them while there is still time. “My goal is to photograph as many of the world’s captive species as I can before time runs out” states Joel. “I’m at about 3,500 now, and just getting started. I work mostly at zoos and aquariums, today’s keepers of the kingdom. Many species would already be gone without their heroic captive-breeding efforts.” In Joel’s words, “It is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. When we save species, we’re saving ourselves.”
Amphibians: Vibrant and Vanishing
On display at Western Kentucky University through November, 2016.
