EAZA Conservation Database
The website says that "The furtherance of wildlife conservation has become the predominant objective of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria and its members. The zoo and aquarium community's role in conservation extends far beyond helping to save endangered species and populations through ex situ breeding programmers. Through their links with and support of in situ projects, research, conservation education and capacity building, advocacy and fundraising, many members of EAZA are active in the conservation of habitats and entire ecosystems."
Farewell to Sudan as another key species fades into extinction
The website says that"The Trust’s founder takes full responsibility for overseeing the process from the initial identification of projects to the eventual disbursement of funds. The overriding goal of the Conservation Action Trust is to save and protect specifically identified species of fauna and flora from threats of destruction or extinction by promoting widespread and impartial investigation and reporting on important conservation and environmental issues. We hope to foster broader awareness and bring about the greater public support for vital conservation and environmental issues.
We accomplish this by:
•Assisting independent journalists to write pertinent, objective stories that might otherwise not have been written.
•Obtaining credibility for these stories by having them widely published in appropriate media.
•Ensuring a wider dissemination of the stories through syndication, along with electronic and social media.
•Commissioning of conservation and environmental reports, investigations and information and dissemination thereof.
•Creating a database of conservation and environmental related information for free access by the general public.
•Promoting empathy and compassion for wild and domestic animals.
•Directing support for specifically identified environmental or conservation projects.

The hunter, whose name has not been established but is believed to be American, is estimated to have paid over R1-million to pull the trigger."
National Snow& Ice Data Center
Advancing knowledge of earth's frozen regions:NSIDS manages and distributes scientific data, creates tools for data access, supports data users, performs scientific research, and educates the public about the cryosphere.
NASA Distributed Active Archive Center(DAAC) at NSIDC
It provides data to of High resolution and quality fast. However, more importantly, the visioning controls and documentation allow the use of subsets and longitudinal sets. Even if it's not your precise area it's worth looking at just to see some really well-done data.
Virtual Observatory Tools
A variety of Virtual Observatory (VO) services and tools exists through various VO projects across the globe. In this section, you can find VO-compatible applications, tools and data archives to do science. These are mostly web-form interface services and/or downloadable Java applications. For these to work the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) should be installed on your computer. Please make sure that you are using the right version of Java.
SKA Africa Square Kilometer Array
South Africa won a major scientific coup when it became part of the square kilometers array project. It's linked into a world wide web of instruments gathering information about quite literally, the birth of the universe. It also produces terabytes of data. It is accessible via university collaborations.
