ARKive: educational resources for the teaching of biodiversity & the importance of preservation
ARKive is a new website dedicated to educating the public about the planet’s biodiversity and raising awareness of the need for preservation. The site creates an audio-visual record of life on earth by bringing together photos and videos of the world’s species, prioritizing them by those species at the greatest risk of extinction.
The site contains several thousand educational resources, including the aforementioned photos and videos, as well as fact files that cover topics such as variation and adaptation, habitats and life cycles, evolution, classification, food chains, and conservation.
All of the website’s photos, video clips, and authenticated fact files are available for students and teachers to use and incorporate into lessons and presentations free of charge.
