Finding Species
Finding Species is a nonprofit organization that focuses on using images to communicate information about biodiversity, especially among researchers, conservationists, and the general public. Their photographers, working with scientists, create scientifically accurate, and beautiful, images of threatened species – both in the lab and in the field. These images illustrate print and Web guides, exhibits, and conservation campaigns.

Geckos of the US

Geckos are known for their ability to vocalize and to climb walls, more so than other lizards. This collection contains images of 21 North American species, as well as their eyes and the specialized structures on their toes of each species, defining characteristics that can be used to identify species.

Western Amazonian Trees

Finding Species has worked with scientists to photograph the trees of Ecuador's Yasuni National Park, located in the Western Amazon. These images concentrate on identifiable characteristics of each species, such as the shape of the whole tree, leaf structure, bark, and fruit.
