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 plan to make identification guides, maps, images, and valuable data on a million species freely available to everyone by 2012. So far we have some information on 199,171 species. We invite you to join us in our quest to reduce disease, increase food production, stop destructive species, protect endangered ones, and enjoy rather than struggle with nature. --John Pickering
