Photo Ark Special Premieres October 17th and 24th
at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD
In the two-hour PHOTO ARK special, tag along with Joel Sartore, Founder of National Geographic Photo Ark. His quest to photograph every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries takes him around the world.
He has photographed over 10,000 species and goes to great lengths to photograph thousands more, even if it means following a giant armadillo into a bathroom! Watch as Joel dives deep under water in the Amazon rainforest and soars more than 12,000 feet above the tree line in the Colorado Rockies, just so he can get the perfect shot.
He must constantly adapt his “photo studios” to accommodate animals with unpredictable habits, to create a connection with audiences around the world, showcasing species like never before. “It’s the eye contact that moves people,” Sartore explains. “It engages their feelings of compassion and a desire to help.” The Photo Ark’s goal is to inspire people to save species and their habitats, while there’s still time.
