FRAGILE NATURE: Photographs by Joel Sartore

You may not be familiar with the name, but chances are you have marveled at
the amazing photographs of Joel Sartore in National Geographic Magazine. With
over a dozen years of working with National Geographic Sartore has captured
images of animals and ecosystems from around the world. Ranging from the
backyards of suburban Nebraska to far-flung locales like the Madidi National
Park in Bolivia, Sartore’s skillful camera work transports us to worlds we might
never see.

Fragile Nature is a compilation of some of Sartore’s most spectacular work to
date, featuring over 50 photographs from his work documenting land use, wildlife
and natural history. This stunning collection “sends a clear message that it’s up
to every single one of us to save the Earth” and is sure to amaze.
Fragile Nature is on display in the Museum’s first floor traveling exhibit hall from
May 12 through September 16, 2007 and is free with regular Museum admission.
The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is located at 1801
Mountain Road NW in Old Town Albuquerque and is open daily from 9-5 except
non-holiday Mondays in September. Museum admission is $7 for adults, $6 for
seniors and $4 for children ages 3-12.
