I'm a big fan of projects looking to archive information of endangered species, particularly quality images, biomechanics and video, so that if conservation efforts fail future generations still at least have good data. So when I discover a project like Endangered, created by photographer Tim Flach, it has to be shared. Flach's photographs (see more at Gizmodo) are beautiful and frequently incredibly poignant, but they're also paired with detailed information on the animals, and the threats they face, from biologist Jonathan Baillie. It's conservation meets art, both noble goals in their own right that are only amplified by their intermixing. Definitely going straight on my future wishlist.

Note: this was originally part of a full article titled "Spiders, Dinosaurs and CVs" and the 49th post in my New 52 challenge. That article also linked to a data visualisation CV, Lucas the adorable arachnid, the trailer for Into the Spiderverse, and an article looking into the history of palaeoart.
