As our FAQ says captive animals are welcome here especially if the focus enables learning about organisms most people might not otherwise see. This is all in the FAQ http://www.projectnoah.org/faq. Please feel free to replace them if you like. This is the link to the 'captive animals' mission. If you join that then you can add a spotting to that mission if you think appropriate. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7973... Again I appologise if you felt 'put out' by some other comments. This is a great community and spottings like your that offer worthwhile information should certainly not be wasted. Thanks for your patience - looking forward to some great spottings.

rs, obrigado pelo suporte Sckel, sem problemas, eu entendi os comentários e eles estavam até corretos em me orientar já que eu acabei de chegar. Eu fotografo apenas por hobby mesmo, apesar de ser engenheiro florestal, mas é por gostar de compartilhar o que vi na natureza, acho que é ou poderia ser o objetivo de todos em um projeto desses. Enfim, estou iniciando um projeto de video documentação da área florestal do campus da UFAM, em Manaus Amazonas, são 600 hectares de floresta no meio de uma cidade com 2 milhoes de habitantes, talvez no próximo ano eu já tenha conseguido concluir. Será um vídeo de 45 minutos. No mais obrigado e um grande abraço.

Oh I'm so sorry that happened. I thought those photos were excellent and most organisms looked to be in natural conditions. We do have a special mission for captive animals. I will clarify the policy and get back to you. Thanks.

Você não deveria ter excluído suas fotos, Francisco. Fico feliz quando vejo brasileiros chegando. Eu ia comentar quando vi que elas não estavam mais. Não entendi porque uns resolveram pegar no seu pé dessa forma. Desculpe intromissão aqui.

Mark, I published some very good pictures of amazon animals, where I live, in rehabilitation centers and I received some criticism about, cause it's a wildlife project and captive animals pictures would not be welcome. So, I removed all those pictures, because I understood that it is a project to record wildlife and I was wrong. BUT.... I've seen here many thousands of butterflies and bees in garden plants pictures and it does not seem "wildlife" ... well ... It makes who arrives a little uncomfortable to continue publishing photos here. So, a butterfly in garden flower is permitted like as savage wildlife, but a detailed photo of a rare manatee in a rehabilitation center not gets well? It's confuse and discouraging... I would like to participate but I really don't know anymore. Sorry.

The submitted date is automatic. The spotted date should be accurate - it looks impossible if many records from different places have the same date. If the locations are all the same then that makes sense. Also I am wondering what happened to your uploads from yesterday? Did you remove some?

Hi, The date that appears is the date of uploading of images to the Noah,s system. I did't register the spot day manually. Images are from 2012 and 2013 at the Amazon Federal University Campus, a 600 ha urban forest, where live hundreds of mammals, birds, reptiles.. Do you see some problem?

Hi again FranciscoMady. Can you please make sure the spotting dates are accurate? It looks strange when all your spottings are on the same day yet all over Amazonia :) thanks.
