Details of our STEM Education Involvement

ARKive is a charity that promotes conservation through wildlife imagery. We are gathering together the very best films and photographs of the world's species into one centralised digital library, to create a unique audio-visual record of life on Earth, prioritising those species at most risk of extinction.
Preserved and maintained for future generations, ARKive is making this key resource accessible to all, from scientists and conservationists to the general public and school children, via
our website - www.arkive.org.
The ARKive website has over 60,000 fantastic films and images of the world's threatened species. It is easily accessible, can be used by anyone and is a great education resource for teachers and pupils.
ARKive's trained STEM Ambassadors carry out activities, lessons and presentations on diverse topics ranging from Darwin to endangered species and from hibernation to adaptation. We also have education pages that are free and easily accessible for teachers and pupils: www.arkive.org/education

STEM Careers covered by our company

We have several STEM careers at ARKive, all requiring a background in biology (generally a biology, zoology or marine biology degree).
Media researchers look for films and images of the world's threatened species. They liaise with scientists, film companies and photographers to track down rare media. In addition, media researchers create online content for the ARKive website and are involved in our online outreach (via blogs, newsletters and social networking).
Scientific text authors research species information to profile threatened species on the ARKive website. They liaise with experts to ensure information on ARKive is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Scientific text authors are also responsible for writing news articles, newsletters and the ARKive blog: http://blog.arkive.org/
