TitleARKive - Images of life on Earth
DescriptionARKive is the Noah's Ark for the Internet era - a unique global initiative, gathering together into a centralised digital library, films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s species. ARKive is leading the ‘virtual’ conservation effort - finding, sorting, cataloguing and copying the key audio-visual records of the world’s animals, plants and fungi, and building them into comprehensive and enduring multi-media digital profiles. Using film, photographs and audio recordings, ARKive is creating a unique record of the world’s biodiversity - complementing other species information datasets, and making a key resource available for scientists, conservationists, educators and the general public. ARKive is a not-for-profit initiative of Wildscreen (<>), a UK-based charity, whose mission is ‘to promote the conservation of nature and public appreciation of biodiversity, through the power of wildlife imagery’. The images found on the ARKive sites remain the copyright of the owner, and cannot be published or used for commercial purposes without prior agreement by the relevant copyright owner. However, they are available for internal private educational use by educators and students (for example they may be used in lessons, presentations, school projects, etc.).
