Discover Life provides free on-line tools to identify species, share ways to teach and study nature's wonders, report findings, build maps, process images, and contribute to and learn from a growing encyclopedia of life that now has 1,289,539 species pages. The Polistes Foundation and our scientific partners plan to add high-quality identification guides, maps, images, and text to these by 2012. Please help us provide everyone with the information we need to reduce disease, increase food production, stop destructive species, protect endangered ones, and enjoy rather than struggle with nature. --John Pickering
