Plot Synopsis

PHOTO ARK is a two-part special that chronicles the journey of Joel Sartore on his quest to use the power of photography to inspire people to save species at risk by photographing every species living in the world's zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. He just recently documented the 10,000th species for the Photo Ark, and he'll go to great lengths to photograph thousands more, even if it means following a giant armadillo into a bathroom! Deep in the Amazon rainforest, Sartore dives underwater to photograph the largest resident of South America, the Amazonian manatee. Out of his wetsuit and armed with emergency oxygen and his camera, this programs follows Sartore 12,000 feet up to the Colorado Rockies just so he can photograph the American pika, a tiny relative of the hare.
