Species Identification

Our work yields tens of thousands of photos of fauna and flora that we can not easily identify. One of our goals is to bring together the global scientific community in an endeavor to identify animals and plants from photos, data, and specimens. To this end, we have developed a clearinghouse mechanism to bring experts to bear on identifying both known species, and finding out which of our photos represent species new to science.

Simply follow these links to our galleries; you will see hundreds of photos of animals that we either have not, or have only tentatively identified. If you would like to make a contribution, make sure that you registered as a contributor by filling out the following information form.
