From Stoss, 2/17/2000: Folks might want to be aware of a serious loss of environmental information with the temporary closing of the EPA's Web site (yes, the entire site is down for an indefinite period of time). This may have some temporary ramifications for EPA's eMail also.

Just a reminder of a tool provided free of charge by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Federal Aid. The Division of Federal Aid works with state agencies to restore fish and wildlife resources using funds from excise taxes collected on hunting and fishing equipment and motorboat fuel taxes. Research reports from state projects are provided to the Fish and Wildlife Reference Service, and can be accessed on the web at:

Ask for a description of the Reference Service and how to search for publications.

Photos are avaialble:

For wildlife images in the public domain, two sites to start with are the USFWS Image Library and the NOAA Photo Galleries:

In general, their artistic merit is somewhat wanting; but there are still some great photos to be found with a little searching--especially from the NOAA collection, which is the more extensive and carefully designed of the two.

There are also a number of excellent wildlife photographers with online galleries who are quite willing to give permission for one-time use, especially to student groups or nonprofit organizations. Offering photo credit and a link to their website usually works fine--and if not, just be creative! (One photographer waived his usual fee in exchange for a box of genuine Texas pralines.)Other sites: - lots and lots of photos, about 3$/ea - fewer photos, free with permission
