I’ve just stumbled across the most fantastic nature website called “Discover Life“. Here’s a quote from their home page:
“ 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 1,214,171 species pages.“
This is definitely a site to keep in your bookmarks. They really do have a brilliant collection of photographs, maps and identification guides. Some of the education content seems US specific but the guides cover species from all over the world.
