General Hospital features the Photo Ark

Well, this is something I never thought I’d do; be on a soap opera! But the entire cast and crew of @generalhospitalabc could not have been nicer, even when I flubbed my lines. I was on the set to tape an episode that features Photo Ark images that were on display in their Jerome Gallery. Such an honor to partner with General Hospital to give species a lift, thanks to their loyal audience.

The Photo Ark (including our new book, ‘Wonders’) was featured in several episodes, thanks to the executive producer of General Hospital, Frank Valentini’s desire to give lift to the Photo Ark and all the creatures within. He believes, as I do, that all species deserve a voice and a chance to survive. With a loyal audience reaching back decades, I have no doubt the fans of General Hospital will want to help in any way they can. Thank you, Frank! And thanks to the entire cast and crew. Catch these special episodes on @abcnetwork.

Together we will make a difference.
