Observe a small, endangered species of deer with National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore and learn how its survival is tied to human activities, in this adapted video from RARE—Creatures of the Photo Ark. The Key deer, one of the rarest mammals in North America, is well adapted to the conditions of its natural habitat, the tropical island chain the Florida Keys. But its population has been threatened by humans who have also made the Keys their home. Even though government protections have helped increase the Key deer population in recent years, these animals remain at risk. This resource is part of the RARE–Creatures of the Photo Ark Collection.
