ASI thinks that it is important to give proper credit to the artists whose images we use on our website and social media. Since it is not always possible or practical to list full attributions where such images are used we have created this page as a way to list full photo credits in accordance with the creator or the license used by the creator. In general, the images on this page are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution CC BY 4.0 or a similar agreement from the original content creator that their work may be used as long as credit is given. 

If you do not see an image from the ASI website or posted by ASI to our social media listed on this page it will be or one of three reasons:

  1. The image in question does not require any attribution as it is in the Public Domain or the creator has expressly waived their rights to the image.
  2. The image in question was owned by ASI, because it was created, purchased, or commissioned by ASI.
  3. The image in question may be incorrectly thought to belong to one of the above categories. If you believe that a work to which you retain the rights (even if it is simply attribution only) has been used by ASI on our website or social media, please let us know so that we can address the situation by giving you proper credit, removing the image, or coming to an acceptable resolution to the situation.

Lastly, THANK YOU to all of the creators who have so generously made their work available to be used by others!

Additional Information: Description from original post on Flickr “Ground Pangolin at Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa. Also known as the Scaly Anteater, it actually walks on its hind feet. It uses its front feet for balance. It is a very rare sight to see since it is primarily nocturnal and is hunted for its scales (for traditional Chinese medicine)”
