Our mission is to assemble and share knowledge
about nature in order to improve education, health,
agriculture, economic developement, 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 link tools and databases to the site. Our plan is to make identification guides and vaulable 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.
