Photo Ark Sweet 16 Birthday Celebration


You’re invited to celebrate the Photo Ark’s Sweet 16 this year! While there might not be any cake or confetti, it’s still going to be a special day and we want to celebrate with you.


Since it first began with a pink, buck-toothed rodent on August 9, 2006, the Ark has come a long way. Just this past month the 13,000th species, a critically endangered spoon-billed sandpiper (Calidris pygmaea) from the United Kingdom, climbed on board and there are many more to come.


To celebrate the Ark’s Sweet 16 birthday, we are having a print sale! All of your favorite Photo Ark images are included in this sale, plus this limited-time montage.*


Get 25% off one print,

30% on two prints,

And 40% off when ordering three prints or more!


*This sale does not include canvas or framed prints.


Be sure to use the coupon code Sweet16 when ordering to receive your discount. Check out this gallery to see some of the species featured in the montage, or search for your own favorite animal!


Don’t delay in joining the fun, this sale only runs through August 16th!
