Travel with renowned photographer Joel Sartore as he photographs at-risk and rare species in the wild, in zoos, and in nature preserves as part of his Photo Ark initiative. This captivating and visually stunning PBS special reveals why ensuring species future matters to us all.
Audiences will journey with Sartore in his race against time to capture photos of the rarest creatures on earth before they disappear. Rare will also look at the human factors driving extinction.
“Fifty percent of all animals are now threatened with extinction, and it’s folly to think we can drive half of everything else to extinction but that people will be just fine,” Sartore said. “I hope seeing the images fills people with wonder and inspires them to want to protect these species.”
