The content for the tropical fish section of mongabay.com originated as a manuscript that was developed from 1992-1994. Tropical Freshwater Aquarium Fish (TFAF) was sold to a major aquarium book publisher in 1995. Shortly after the sale, the publisher merged with another firm and the TFAF project was shelved indefinitely. After 7 years the rights reverted back to me so in 2002 I posted an early version of the content.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated from mongabay.com operations (server, data transfer, travel) are mitigated through an association with Anthrotect, an organization working with Afro-indigenous and Embera communities to protect forests in Colombia's Darien region. Anthrotect is protecting the habitat of mongabay's mascot: the scale-crested pygmy tyrant.
