Some photographs I took of a Parkhill Prairie Crayfish colony are now on display at ARKive.org. ARKive is and interesting project whose stated mission is “Promoting the Conservation of the World’s Threatened Species, Through the Power of Wildlife Imagery.”

The Parkhill Prairie Crayfish I found were located in Denton County just to the west of Collin County in an area where they are not documented to exist.

ARKive also has the backing of many of the world’s leading conservation organizations, including BirdLife International, Conservation International, IUCN, UNEP-WCMC, and WWF, as well as leading academic and research institutions, such as the Natural History Museum, London; Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; and the Smithsonian Institution.

The ARKive project has unique access to the very best of the world’s wildlife films and photographs, with more than 3,500 of the world’s leading filmmakers and photographers actively contributing to the project, and giving ARKive unprecedented access to their materials. Contributors include the most famous names in natural history broadcasting, commercial film and picture agencies, leading academic institutions and international conservation organizations, as well as myriad individual filmmakers, photographers, scientists and conservationists.
