Join National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore as he travels 10,000 miles from his home in Nebraska to Madagascar. He's here to photograph creatures found nowhere else on the planet, and add them to his Photo Ark.
Joel's main goal is to photograph a lemur, the rare and acrobatic Decken's sifaka. He journeys three days - one-way - just to get to the world's only captive individuals. It's that or enter its home in the wild, a stone forest blanketed with razor-sharp rocks. The sifaka have...

You don't have to travel 10,000 miles to find rare animals. Joel hops down to the Florida Keys, where sea level rise is real. Joel is on a mission to photograph the endangered Lower Keys marsh rabbit. Time's running out before sea water destroys its home, where much of it is less than three feet above sea level.
