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 do research, use maps, report your findings, contribute to and learn from the Web's growing encyclopedia of life, and discover, watch, and understand nature's wonders. The Polistes Foundation and its partners are adding tools and linking data to the site. Our plan is to make identification guides and accurate, timely biological information on a million species freely available to everyone within 10 years. We invite you to join us in this quest to reduce disease, increase food production, stop destructive species, protect endangered ones, and enjoy rather than struggle with nature. -- John Pickering
