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
link tools and databases to the site.
is to make identification guides and valuable information on a million species freely available to everyone.
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.
