Photo Ark

Want to see every single species of animals, all in one place? That's just what National Geographic is trying to create. From cuddly cute to outrageously strange, we want to see—and save—them all!

 

Through a project called Photo Ark, photographer Joel Sartore is visiting zoos around the world to snap pictures of all 15,000 species of captive animals, and so far he's photographed 10,000. He hopes to use the photos to inspire people to save the planet’s most endangered animals. Check out the photos and videos below to learn more!
