Hi Dave and Listers,
Seaweb's Marine Photobank is a wonderful resource that provides
marine-focused imagery that, with attribution, is free to use for
Go to the galleries link to start searching for images. My only warning is
that their search engine is very literal, so you have to try lots of
combinations; I recommend searching for "coral disease", "dead coral", "dead
corals", "dead reef" and "dead reefs" to get you started for your needs.
They have a large database of images covering all aspects of ocean-related
environmental issues. Anybody can also contribute photographs to the
database. I've uploaded a number of photographs and have been surprised by
how regularly they are used.
