I think it's great. Wish I had DSL though. Are these your photos? If so,
I'm guessing they weren't taken with a digital camera, right?

It would be great if NANFA had something like this to give
members. Loaning slides is too much trouble and reproducing them is too
expensive. It would be really useful if NANFA could collect images from
willing photographers and arrange them in educational formats. CDs are
such a great distribution mechanism, and can be formatted with an entire
educational program targeted to a specific audience, region, whatever.

I'm completely on board with this as NANFA's next great project! I would
request that it be more than just photos-- species descriptions,
conservation status, etc, would make it much more valuable.
