The National Geographic Society Photo Ark will be on exhibit at Gathering Place from April 30-July 31, 2022! Led by National Geographic Explorer and photographer Joel Sartore, the project aims to document every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries; inspire action through education; and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.
The Photo Ark at Gathering Place is a celebration of Oklahoma’s native and migratory species showcasing more than 35 images of animals local to the region, including the spoonbill paddlefish, scissor-tailed flycatcher, monarch butterflies, and the American bison. Pictures of some of the world’s most exotic animals are also highlighted in an effort to inspire people to care and help protect these animals for future generations.
Funded by the AEP Foundation on behalf of Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) through the Explore & Imagine program, the exhibit is free to the public and will be on display in ONEOK Boathouse.
