Photo Ark exhibit visits Lincoln Children’s Zoo
The Photo Ark is going back to where it all started — literally.
From now until June 20th the Lincoln Children’s Zoo will be hosting a Photo Ark gallery, inviting guests to get up close and personal with images from the Ark.
Over 15 years ago the Photo Ark began at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo where Joel photographed the first animal, a naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber). Since then, he’s added more than 12,000 other species to the Ark.
The gallery at the zoo features some of the Ark’s most popular and charismatic animals as well as some of the most rare and endangered. Among the species featured in the exhibit are some of the zoo’s own residents, like a southern three-banded armadillo (Tolypeutes matacus).
Critters from across the animal kingdom are featured in the gallery, with species representing each major class: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and invertebrates.
Be sure to visit the gallery or check out some of the images below to see how the Photo Ark has grown since it first began in Lincoln.
