About Joel Sartore
Joel Sartore is a photographer, author, and 25-year contributor to National Geographic magazine. Through his Photo Ark project, he is aiming to photograph every species of animal under human care, an estimated 12,000.
His book, Birds of the Photo Ark, includes remarkable avian images from the project, accompanied by text from birder Noah Stryker. For avian enthusiasts, from armchair observers to dedicated life-listers, this brilliant book celebrates the beauty of all birds, great and small.
“Joel Sartore is an ambassador extraordinaire for the beleaguered animals of our planet and should receive a Nobel Prize,” says Jane Goodall. “No one can look at these sensitive portraits of the incredible animal beings and not be amazed and inspired to do all in our power to preserve them. I can think of no other book with such a compelling message.”
