Images needed for Saguaro National Park Species

Last updated over 1 year ago

This collection highlights prominent species that occur in Saguaro National Park but that do not yet have good images on EOL. Please help us to find photos or illustrations for these plants and animals!

How can you help?

If you have your own images that you can contribute, the easiest way to do this is through the Encyclopedia of Life Images Group on Flickr. Basic Flickr accounts are free, and it's easy to tag your images, so they can get harvested by EOL. We even have a tutorial that will take you through the process step by step.

Note that EOL can only use images if they are released under a creative commons license that's compatible with the EOL licensing policy. "All rights reserved" images or images that are subject to a license that does not allow reuse for derivative works cannot be featured on EOL.

If you don't have your own images, you can still help by finding suitable images on the web. If the images you find are already released under a compatible license, we can simply ask the image owners to post them to the Encyclopedia of Life Images Flickr Group. If the image owner is not interested in using Flickr, we can upload their image to our EOL Rapid Response LifeDesk (for images supplied by scientists) or EOL Interns LifeDesk (for images that need confirmation of the species identification). If you find images that are "All rights reserved" or have a "NoDeriv" license, you can try to convince the image owner to release the image under a compatible license, e.g. a ShareAlike or NonCommercial license, so EOL can use it. If the owner does not want to release a full resolution image, they can apply the license to a low resolution version for EOL use.
