I hope to have a new post for you by mid-week if not before, but until then, I leave you with some true wisdom from Albert Schweitzer, theologian, musician, physicist, philosopher (how's that for a resume!):

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,
man will not himself find peace.

Awww, naughty map! Well, it's kind of crappy software anyway, just make a new one, it only takes three seconds or so.

Dear Eventer79,



I hope you do not mind me contacting you but I am currently researching images of threatened fish for the ARKive project (www.arkive.org.uk). During my research I cam across your images of the Waccamaw silverside (Menidia extensa) on the fishbase website and was wondering whether you might be willing to let us display these on ARKive?

ARKive – www.arkive.org – is a unique conservation initiative, which aims to increase awareness of the need for biodiversity conservation by using wildlife imagery. Films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s animals, plants and fungi are being gathered into one centralised digital library. To date we have created digital multi-media profiles for some 5,000 species, digitising and storing more than 37,000 still images and over 60 hours of moving footage. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available via the ARKive website.

I can send more information about the ARKive project. However, in summary:

§ It is ARKive's current aim to compile audio-visual records for the 17,000-plus species currently threatened with extinction, according to the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.

§ We are looking for media (moving footage, still images and audio) to depict each species' life history as comprehensively as possible. In order for us to achieve this aim we need help from as wide a variety of media donors as possible.

§ The ARKive website acts as a showcase for image providers, displaying copyright and contact details with every image and links to each media donor's own web activities.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me,

With best wishes,

Becky
