LIFE, the fauna and flora of Earth in photos
Thoushands of photos of birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fishes, butterflies and orchids ordered by species. You can browse between all the species and add your photos!
How it works
The project 'Life' has been created by the idea of ordering the photos for the animal or plant portrayed, to create an enormous encyclopedia for all readers and members of JuzaPhoto. Since the subject - the life on Earth - is immense, the species are added on request; if you have at least one photo of a species that is not listed you can get it added by sending a mail to email@example.com .To add your photos
, if the species is already listed, you just have to go in the species page and to click on 'Add your photos'. If you add a photo by error, you can remove the incorrect ID by opening the photo in your galleries and clicking on the red [X] near the scientific name, in the caption of your photo.
If you have photos of a species that is not listed, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the scientific names of the species that you want to add. Usually the species are added in 3-4 days, but it may be necessary to wait up to three weeks if the admin is absent.
