Description: National Geographic contributing photographer and Nebraska native Joel Sartore has spent two decades on a mission to document North American species facing extinction. Sixty-nine of these animals and plants are profiled in the book and exhibition RARE: Portraits of Americas Endangered Species. The exhibition and book serve as a poignant roll call of North Americas most endangered wildlifeand an urgent call to action. Our fellow creatures are dying- and need our help. Organized by number of living populations for each species, the exhibition also examines the history, purpose, and effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act of 1973.The exhibition will celebrate endangered species making a comeback: including the gray wolf (now numbering 4,128), the bald eagle, with a population of around 20,000, and the American alligator, which has rebounded from the verge of extinction to more than one million individuals.
