by the EF! Journal Collective

Joel Sartore is a photographer, educator and chronicler of the extinction crisis. Three of his recent collections describe, through vivid images, what we are losing, at a rate of 100 species every day. These are visual reminders of what is at stake if we fail to act. Please take a moment to check out these galleries.
