It’s time for a holiday #giveaway, and this is one of my favorites! “How can I get people to care that we could lose half of all species by the turn of the next century?” ~Joel Sartore, National Geographic Photographer
I believe my love of animals started with my big picture book, Noah’s Ark. My mother told me that when I was small my parents would take turns reading to me at bedtime. Each night I’d drag the big book to bed, and by the age of two they’d read it to me so many times, that I could recite it word for word.
When I first saw the PBS documentary series on @joelsartore and his Photo Ark project, I knew I wanted to help him build his Ark. Since starting the project in 2005, he has photographed at least 6500 of the 12,000 animal species in human care. The portraits are spectacular and brilliantly laid out. His goal, fueled by his passion for life on earth, is to show the world what biodiversity looks like and get everyone to care about saving species while there’s still time.
I’ve bought several books to gift friends with young children. My hope is that they’ll create a reading ritual like my parents did with me.
Sparking a love for the future of life on earth is something that deserves our attention.
I’m #giving away two Photo Ark books. For a chance to win one, you must follow my account, like this post, and for additional entries you may leave a comment and/or tag at least three friends. Let’s spread the word and help Joel build a magnificent Ark! Together we can save our species and habitats, and keep
