Who we are

Our mission is to assemble and share knowledge about nature in order to improve education, health, agriculture, economic development, and conservation throughout the world.

Discover Life helps you to identify things, share ways to teach and study nature's wonders, use maps, report your findings, and contribute to and learn from the Web's growing encyclopedia of life. The Polistes Foundation and its partners are linking tools and databases to the site. Our plan is to make identification guides and valuable, timely information on a million species freely available to everyone within 10 years. We invite you to join us in a quest to reduce disease, increase food production, stop destructive species, protect endangered ones, and enjoy rather than struggle with nature. --John Pickering
