The NBPL Foundation invites you to a Witte Lecture with Joel Sartore on April 12.
Joel Sartore is an award-winning photographer, speaker, author, conservationist, the 2018 National Geographic Explorer of the Year, and a regular contributor to National Geographic Magazine. Sartore specializes in documenting endangered species and landscapes around the world. He is the founder of the Photo Ark, a 25-year documentary project to save species and habitats. “It is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity,” he says. “When we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.” Sartore and the Photo Ark are the subjects of the television series RARE, in which he documents some of the most endangered creatures left on Earth. In addition to National Geographic, Joel contributes to Audubon, Geo, The New York Times, and Smithsonian. He has authored several books, including Photo Ark: A World Worth Saving, and RARE: Portraits of America’s Endangered Species.
