Greetings, My name is Judy Dourson and I work for a non-profit organization called Belize Foundation for Research and Environmental Education in southern Belize. Part of our mission is to educate the local schoolchildren in the buffer communities of the Bladen Nature Reserve (adjacent to us) about the flora and fauna of the reserve in hopes that this knowledge will help to conserve the area. My husband is writing a book that will be disseminated to the local schools for this purpose. He would like to use your image of the hercules beetle for that purpose. Would you consider allowing us to use it? Thanks....Judy Dourson (our website)
