Free archival images to use on your creative projects
If you’re an artist, designer, teacher or professor that uses photos and illustrations of animals, nature and science then you’ll love exploring the free archival images made available through the hard work of The Biodiversity Heritage Library (and the generosity of its donors).
Here’s the simple yet noble vision the Biodiversity Heritage Library has for their site “Inspiring discovery through free access to biodiversity knowledge.”
I discovered. I was inspired.
At the time of writing there’s almost 90,000 free archival images you can use via the Biodiversity Heritage Library’s Flickr Photostream.
Here’s some of our favourites so far:
Trinchese e Belloncidis

I climbed to the top. Now I’m here.
So do we.
