Join us to hear special guest speaker Joel Sartore, award-winning National Geographic Photographer and founder of the Photo Ark. The Photo Ark is a groundbreaking collection of over 10,000 animal studio portraits. Joel’s goal is to document 5,000 more animal species to educate the public on the importance of conservation and save species from extinction.
Guests are invited to a VIP reception/book signing, dinner provided by Lee Towery, Photo Ark exhibit, interactive animal encounters and much more! Banana Ball is the Chattanooga Zoo’s single largest fundraising event with all proceeds going to support our Africa II Expansion to bring additional African animals to Chattanooga.
