National Geographic Photographer to Speak
Joel Sartore, National Geographic photographer, will speak at Ohio Northern University's Freed Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m.
Sartore's presentation, "Witnessing to Warming," blends humor with powerful conservation messages and award-winning wildlife photography.
Sartore has worked for National Geographic since 1991. Featured in more than 20 magazine articles, Sartore's photographs have made a permanent mark on the places and animals he's chronicled. He has covered grizzly bears in the Canadian Rockies and Yellowstone National Park; exotic wildlife in the Amazon rain forest; Brazil's Pantanal, the world's largest freshwater wetland; and Alaska's North Slope, where big oil, wild creatures and native populations collide in the largest remaining U.S. wilderness. In addition to National Geographic, Sartore's work has appeared in Audubon, Life, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Time and the "Day in the Life" book series.
This event is part of Polar Bear Nation, a yearlong campaign to raise awareness of climate change and its effects on the polar bear.
This event is free and open to the public.
