Dear Jim,

I am currently researching images of the Yellow Grouper, Mycteroperca interstitialis, for ARKive and hope that you are able to help as I have seen your image of this species on Scubadiving.com (http://dive.scubadiving.com/members/divetips.php?s=682). ARKive - www.arkive.org - aims to raise 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. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available to view via the ARKive website.

I can e mail you more information about the ARKive project. However, in summary:

It is ARKive's current aim to compile audio-visual records for the 16,000-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.

See examples of species which have been ‘ARKived’ at: www.arkive.org.

A full list of species that we are currently working on can be found at: http://www.arkive.org/aboutARKive_speciesLists.html.

Please let me know if you would like to include your images within the ARKive project.

With best wishes,

Dr. Mairead M Maclean
