Woodland Park Zoo will host the traveling National Geographic exhibition, “National Geographic Photo Ark,” from April 20 through October 7. The National Geographic Photo Ark is an ambitious project committed to documenting every species in zoos, aquariums and animal rescue centers—inspiring people not just to care, but also to help protect these animals for future generations.
Featuring the work of National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore, National Geographic is showcasing this important project through multiple platforms. The National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition at Woodland Park Zoo will highlight 56 of Sartore’s more than 50 most compelling images and provide guests with the extraordinary opportunity to come face to face with animals from the National Geographic Photo Ark. The 8’ tall x 6’ wide portraits will be displayed across the zoo’s 92 botanical acres. A diversity of mammal, reptile, and bird species will be represented including animals currently living at the zoo such as Matschie’s tree kangaroo, Western pond turtle, Sumatran orangutan, snow leopard, Humboldt penguin and greater one-horned rhino (new species coming in May).
This exhibition is organized by the National Geographic Society and Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.
