ARKive works with the world's best filmmakers, photographers, conservationists and scientists to create a multimedia guide to the world's endangered species. The educational resources produced by ARKive help students to understand concepts of evolution and biodiversity and contain rich images of a wide variety of species. In this collection, resources cover a wide range of topics.

These include: 

  • variation, adaptation and evolution 
  • classification and the use of keys
  • biodiversity and endangered species

Please note that the website is no longer available. However, in March 2024, to continue the legacy of ARKive, Wildscreen launched Wildscreen ARK, an online nature education hub for young people, built to inspire curiosity about the natural world and empower them to protect it.
