Celebrating Nature’s Diversity

Art & Installations

From African Elephants to Whooping Cranes, the diversity of animals that call our planet home is breathtaking. This permanent installation features stunning photography from the National Geographic Photo Ark by renowned photographer Joel Sartore. His intimate photos aim to forge connections to these animals and inspire action to save them. Join us in Celebrating Nature’s Diversity!

About the Photo Ark

Joel Sartore founded the National Geographic Photo Ark over 15 years ago in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. Joel has made it his mission to photograph each and every species that is under human care in zoos and nature preserves across the globe. To date, he has captured portraits of over 12,000 different species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates in more than 50 countries!

About the Exhibit

This multidimensional display of images from the Photo Ark was proposed and designed by Dr. Paul Bartlett, friend of The Lawrence and Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley.
