Yesterday I attended a NatGeo talk given by one of their photographers, Joel Satore. He has been with NG for 25 years and currently he is on a crusade to photograph endangered species for his PhotoArk project. One of the keys to his endeavour to help the endangered species he said - was to encourage people to participate and be members of their local Zoos and help bring about change by helping the local zoo and publishing as often and as much as possible images of endangered species to bring awareness and educate as many people as possible.

Oddly enough, while it was not my motivation in the beginning to start on Zoo photography, it has over the years my desire to bring about a wider understanding of habitats in danger and species that are being threatened - at the very least to my local community. The more people know what can happen in the near future the more people will be motivated to change. I hope you will spare a few moments to watch the video and start participating in helping in your local community by educating others.

With what Canonised said, I agree 100%. The San Diego Zoo does care for many endangered and critically endangered animals. One of my personal favorites is the Amur Leopard which is currently on the critically endangered list. As of 2015 there were only about 60 in the wild.

This black beauty is "Mystique", a Melanistic Amur Leopard. Very rare. The others below her are both males "Charlie" and "Rafferty".
