ARKive is a not-for-profit initiative of Wildscreen (www.wildscreen.org.uk), a UK-based charity, whose mission is to use the power of wildlife images to inspire the people of the world to value and conserve our natural environment and its biodiversity.
It is ARKive's current aim to compile audio-visual records, where such media exists, for the 15,000-plus species currently threatened with extinction, according to the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.
ARKive has also created a British Chapter profiling rare and protected British species, as well as some of the more common representatives of Britain's fauna and flora, producing one of the most comprehensive audio-visual records of Britain's natural history heritage.
Access restrictions: No restrictions.
