The public is invited to hear renowned National Geographic photographer and conservationist Joel Sartore on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Joel Sartore is trying to save our ecosystem through his work with a camera. He photographs rare species and his book, RARE: Portraits of America’s Endangered Species, is one of several he’s published to document the danger of allowing the loss of these animals. He says that it is folly to think that we can destroy one species and ecosystem after another and not affect humanity. He feels that when we save a species, we are actually saving ourselves.
Sartore has contributed to Audubon Magazine, Time, Life, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and is a regular contributor to CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. He travels around the world to take photos of species on the verge of extinction, and then uses these in shows throughout the globe to help viewers become aware of what is happening on planet Earth. He is scheduled to project some of his photos onto two screens outside the Vatican next year.
His work was highlighted in a recent CBS Sunday Morning piece by Martha Teichner, aired on November 15, 2015, who noted he is working against the clock to document species before they disappear forever. Bishop Dunne will host Joel Sartore on February 25, 2015, at 7:00 p.m., in the school’s Milam J. Joseph Auditorium. The public is invited to attend. Tickets are $20 per person and $10 for Bishop Dunne students and their family members.
