Photographer Joel Sartore is working on a project called Photo Ark to photograph endangered animals that are currently held in captivity. His portraits are engaging and beautiful. In total he’s already photographed 6,000 animals.
Looking at his photographs, I’m in awe of the amount of diversity in nature. I’ve read all sorts of commentary and opinions on animal extinction, but one thing I think all people can agree is that the amount of diversity of nature on Earth shouldn’t be allowed to perish, especially at the hands of man, and not when we can actively work to reverse it.
