Hi Peter,

As Lex Barron mentioned, I recommend you visit the Marine Photobank.  
Our collection highlights pressing ocean conservation issues in order 
to visually engage audiences.  Images are available for non-commercial, 
conservation efforts.  The success of the Marine Photobank is based on 
the generous contributions of our professional and amateur 
photographers, researchers (including Lex Barron and other 
coral-listers), conservationists and general public who have 
contributed their images with the understanding that they will be used 
for non-commercial purposes at no cost.

Since you are a for-profit entity, I recommend you review the gallery 
thumbnails and indicate images of interest.  If you find any images 
that you would like to use, I can approach the photographers and see if 
they will grant you permission to use for your good intentions.  Please 
note that thumbnail images are viewable without a membership.  Simply 
copy (or drag) thumbnail images of interest into an email and send 
along to me for reference.

If other Coral-Listers are in the same situation, feel free to contact 
me and I will do what I can to help you as well.

Take care,

Reuven Walder

The Marine Photobank is a leading visual resource that has galvanized 
people from all over the planet to collect, share and download marine 
photos, images and graphics that shed light on how humans have affected 
life in the ocean. The Marine Photobank was founded in response to a 
lack of readily available, high quality underwater and above water 
ocean conservation images. These images are available at no cost for 
non-commercial purposes as well as for media use.

We are a recreational dive centre on the east coast of peninsula 
We are introducing a free, twice weekly educational presentation to
introduce the local marine life to tourists and heighten our concerns 
the rapidly degrading coral reef ecosystems.

We have a shortage of imagery.  Are any listers able to provide digital
pictures (or short movies) to include into a projected powerpoint show?
Files can be emailed to images at watercolours.com.my

Credit can be given to those contributing.  I also welcome pointers to 
online databases providing quality imagery?  Images on the web tend to 
too small and low-res for our needs.
