Wildscreen Arkive ADMIN July 1, 2014
The Wildscreen Exchange group is now open for submissions! www.flickr.com/groups/wildscreenexchange/

We are looking for images of as many species and habitats as possible, as well as images connected to conservation issues or action and images of people of all ages interacting with nature.

Group Description

This group has been started to enable you to submit your images to Arkivewww.arkive.org.

Arkive is leading the ‘virtual’ conservation effort, gathering together films and photographs of the world’s threatened animals, plants and fungi into one centralised digital library to create a unique audio-visual record of life on Earth.

Arkive is making this resource accessible to all, from scientists and conservationists, to the general public and school children, as a valuable educational resource and conservation tool, via its award-winning website – www.arkive.org.

It is Arkive’s immediate aim to compile audio-visual profiles for the world’s threatened species. In order for us to achieve this, we need help from as wide a variety of donors as possible and we would like to be able to add Flickr users to our growing list of contributors.

Thank you for your contributions to the Arkive Flickr group.

"A vast treasury of wildlife images has been steadily accumulating over the past century, yet no one has known its full extent - or indeed its gaps - and no one has had a comprehensive way of gaining access to it. Arkive will put that right, and it will be an invaluable tool for all concerned with the well-being of the natural world."
