From our club friend, John Reed:
By now I’m sure you’ve all seen my exhibition at the Jacksonville Zoo! 🙂 If not, still time as 49 framed photos will still be on display in the Palm Plaza Cafe at least through the end of this month. Go see them!!
Then, get ready to be even more amazed with the photography of renowned photographer Joel Sartore. I hope you all will come out Sunday at UNF to hear Joel speak and then visit the Zoo sometime while the Photo Ark is there.
The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is excited to present National Geographic Photo Ark Founder and Photographer Joel Sartore. During this one-hour engagement at the University of North Florida Joel will share stories of Photo Ark species endemic to our area and his journey in creating the Photo Ark.
Tickets are $20 and include a General Admission ticket to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. Zoo members may purchase tickets for $5 which directly supports the Zoo and Gardens’ conservation programs.
Ages 13 and older are welcome. Seats are limited and tickets are required. Parking is free.
About the National Geographic Photo Ark
Through the generous sponsorship of donors Jennifer and Joseph Duke and Joseph and Renate Hixon, the stunningly beautiful portraits of the National Geographic Photo Ark will be displayed throughout the Zoo and Gardens November 17 through March 1.
Twenty-six kiosks featuring 52 animal species from around the world will be on exhibit for members and guests to enjoy. Through the exhibition, the Zoo hopes to further convey the local and global initiatives supported by the Zoo and bring awareness to the importance of wildlife conservation around the world.
Best regards and thanks,
Photographer, educator, writer
