USA Today Publishes Story About 12 Days of Photo Ark

On December 12th, 2017, USA Today published a story documenting the Photo Ark’s 12 Days of Christmas social media campaign.

The Photo Ark project, which aims to document every species living in the world’s zoos and other protected areas before they’re extinct, is releasing one photo a day for 12 days on social media. From koalas to flamingos and finches, this is a 12 days roundup that doesn’t require purchasing clothing or electronics you might never use.

The 12 Days of Photo Ark campaign aimed to increase awareness of the importance of maintaining our planet’s biodiversity.
