The photographs in this exhibition depict the rarest of the rare in our country. There are fewer than 600 whooping cranes left on Earth. The Mount Graham red squirrel is down to about half of that. The California tiger salamander may be rarer still.

Joel Sartore brings a sense of humor and a Midwestern work ethic to his work as a photographer, author, conservationist, and speaker around the world. In 20 years and 30 stories for National Geographic Magazine, he has covered everything from the Arctic to Antarctica, from Africa to the Amazon.

Joel’s work focuses on endangered species, natural history, and land use issues. His current personal project is a multi-year effort to document Earth’s vanishing biodiversity. Whether the subject is as large and charismatic as a grizzly bear or as humble as a frog, all are given equal consideration the world over.

In his words, “it is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. When we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.”
