Using and Finding Images

Searching for anything on the Web can be rewarding, frustrating, but most of all, time consuming.  Below are some sites that can help you find images of animals and people for your curated exhibit. Most importantly, many these sites will give you images that allow for downloading, so that you have no ethical or legal concerns about their reuse.
