Reef Life Survey is a non-profit citizen science program in which trained SCUBA divers undertake standardised underwater visual surveys of reef biodiversity on rocky and coral reefs around the world.
Images and information associated with all species recorded by Reef Life Survey divers are available through the Reef Species of the World pages on the RLS website, where users can use a map to search for species in the area of interest, and order results by how common they are

Welcome to British Marine Life Pictures, thank you for visiting.
The purpose of this website is an on-line image information resource.
All 1838 photographs shown were taken underwater and therefore the marine animals are seen in a natural context.
I hope you find the website interesting and useful. Feedback is very welcome.
HELP! – Within the gallery there is a portfolio named ‘Identification Required’ – if you can help identify any of the animals please leave a note using the 'Identify or Correct' or 'Contact Me' pages. Thank you!
New photographs will continue to be added.
This website was created in November 2008.

The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency.
We play a pivotal role in providing large-scale, long-term and world-class research that helps governments, industry and the wider community to make informed decisions about the management of Australia’s marine estate.
AIMS is a Commonwealth statutory authority established by the Australian Institute of Marine Science Act 1972.

The aim of a World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. While the highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature.
The content of WoRMS is controlled by taxonomic and thematic experts, not by database managers. WoRMS has an editorial management system where each taxonomic group is represented by an expert who has the authority over the content, and is responsible for controlling the quality of the information. Each of these main taxonomic editors can invite several specialists of smaller groups within their area of responsibility to join them.
Resources to build MarineSpecies.org and Aphia were provided mainly by the EU Network of Excellence ‘Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning’ (MarBEF), and also by the EU funded Species 2000 Europe and ERMS projects.
Aphia contains valid species names, synonyms and vernacular names, and extra information such as literature and biogeographic data. Besides species names, Aphia also contains the higher classification in which each scientific name is linked to its parent taxon. The classification used is a ‘compromise’ between established systems and recent changes. Its aim is to aid data management, rather than suggest any taxonomic or phylogenetic opinion on species relationships.
Keeping WoRMS up-to-date is a continuous process. New information is entered daily by the taxonomic editors and by the members of our data management team. Often data also come in from contributions of large datasets, such as global or regional species lists. No database of this size is without errors and omissions. We can’t promise to make no errors, but we do promise to follow up and give feedback on any communications pointing out errors. Feedback is very welcome!

Dr. J.E.N. "Charlie" Veron, the "Godfather of Corals" has created the site "Corals of the World" to provide great assistance in identifying stony corals from around the world.
The site features almost all stony corals with color pictures, and for specialists, the coral skeleton as well.
It is worthwhile for all coral lovers to browse on the great site, and maybe even identify their own corals.
Have fun with this site!

Our Mission is Saving the World’s Coral Reefs
The Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is a non-profit, environmental NGO that is on a mission to save the world’s coral reefs. We work collaboratively with communities to reduce direct threats to reefs in ways that provide long-term benefits to people and wildlife. In parallel, CORAL is actively expanding the scientific understanding of how corals adapt to climate change and is applying this information to give reefs the best chance to thrive for generations to come. Our broad expertise uniquely positions us to rally the conservation community around scalable and effective solutions for coral reefs around the world.
