  1. Dear Jonas,

    I am currently searching for images of Picea schrenkianaon behalf of the ARKive project and came across your image on wikimedia: http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:IMG_9369-Kaindy.jpg. I would really like to include this image on the ARKive site with your permission. Having this image represented on ARKive would greatly assist us in our conservation efforts and hopefully raise awareness of the threats posed to the species.

    ARKive - www.arkive.org - is a unique conservation initiative.

    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 over 4000 species, digitising and storing more than 30,000 still images and over 5000 videos. 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 some documentation that will tell you a lot more 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, 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 donors as possible and would like to be able to add you to our list of contributors.

    • 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.

    Please let me know if you would like to contribute to ARKive or if you have any queries on katrina.armour@wildscreen.org.uk.

    Best wishes,

    Kaz Armour
    ARKive Media Researcher
