Today we join an international effort to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants in honor of World Wildlife Day. While facing many challenges, the biggest threat to wildlife is habitat loss that leads to a rise of endangered species. Photographer and activist Joel Sartore’s multiyear project Photo Ark documents Earth’s wildlife before they disappear. Photo Ark hopes to inspire millions around the world with the message that it’s not too late to save some of the planet’s most endangered species.
