ENN is proud to announce our newest affiliate, ARKive. ENN partners with leaders in environmental and sustainability issues to bring you cutting edge news to help you stay up to date on the important issues of the day. Endangered species are being impacted by deforestation and development on every continent. Most people have only a limited idea of just how many species are endangered, what they look like, what habitats they need to survive, and what we can do to help them stay around a little longer, or perhaps, rebound enough to no longer be endangered.
Wildlife films and photos are vital weapons in the battle to save the world’s endangered biodiversity from the brink of extinction. So, with the help of the world’s best filmmakers, photographers, conservationists and scientists, ARKive is creating the ultimate multimedia guide to the world’s endangered species.
In a world in which a species becomes extinct every 20 minutes, films, photographs, and audio recordings may soon be all that remain of these species. However, until now, this valuable imagery has been scattered throughout the world in a wide variety of private, commercial and specialist collections, with no centralized collection, restricted public access, limited educational use, and no coordinated strategy for its long term preservation.
