Less Common Questions

What kinds of products do you sell? Jungle Photos mission is to inspire conservation through education. Therefore, we sell products only to support the mission. In this sense, Jungle Photos is not a "commercial" site. Jungle Photos does sell a wide range of products in association with Amazon.com but we do not carry any unique products. We sell royalty-free licensing rights for images to be used for commercial purposes. Please contact us if you have questions regarding licensing of Jungle Photos images.

Again, please respect copyright laws and request permission for any usage.

Why are some of the additional information pages incomplete? In May 2005, Jungle Photos transitioned from a frames-based site with content primarily on the Amazon rainforest to a CSS-based site with photos and information from Africa and the Galapagos Islands as well as the Amazon. We are still researching the information for a number of the topics introduced by the photos. Join JPUG, the Jungle Photos User Group supported by Yahoo! and visit the Jungle Journal to keep up to date on when additional pages are completed. (Summary of changes and improvements with the upgrade)

What are future plans for Jungle Photos? The immediate plans for Jungle Photos focus on debugging and building content. The site's architecture is designed to make the site easily expandable so besides new photos and information on the existing sub-domains, we may add geographic regions, such as Patagonia or Europe. Within the present site, additional interactive features are planned such as on-line games, quizzes and crosswords. As content matures, and the Jungle Photos user base grows, we plan to move to a more commercial business model. The goals and mission of Jungle Photos will remain but we are planning to develop multiple revenue streams in order to fund future growth. The aim is to provide our visitors with a better experience, more information and resource support, and to build partnerships with conservation organizations.

Unusual Questions

What can I do if pages load slowly? Jungle Photos is designed to work well even if you have a slow internet connection. However, the site will work best if you have a high speed internet connection such as DSL or cable modem. If you have a dial up (56K or slower) connection, a page with two or three images will take up to a minute to load, and if the connection is broken you will need to start again.

Have you won any awards? Jungle Photos has not yet won any awards. The present goal is to focus on building content and brand recognition and to implement a systematic marketing plan. We'd be delighted if you'd like to nominate Jungle Photos for an award, but please let us know.
