This Endangered Species Day, the National Geographic Society is shining a light on species at risk around the globe. In collaboration with out-of-home advertising associations in 22 countries, we are showcasing 10 animals from the National Geographic Photo Ark on digital billboards, mall kiosks, tram cars, rail station displays and other digital out-of-home formats. All of these species are listed as vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List.
