Photo Ark Zoo Exhibitions Open for Summer 2017

Zoos across the country are going to be seeing even more animals this summer! The images of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore’s Photo Ark project will be displayed at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo, the Dallas Zoo and the Cincinnati Zoo starting in April and May.

The Photo Ark project was created to bring audiences face-to-face with all kinds of species, big and small, and recognize the vital importance of biodiversity. By creating simple, clean portraits on black and white backgrounds, the animals are all on a level playing field. A mouse becomes as enormous as an elephant. A tiger is equally as exquisite as a tiger beetle.

The Photo Ark zoo exhibitions will also include information on the species and conservation. Visitors are encouraged to take selfies with the Photo Ark animals and join in on the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #SaveTogether.
