The Encyclopedia of Life is an online reference and database which has ambitions to grow to include all 1.8 million species currently known to science and will stay current by capturing information on newly discovered and formally described species. The Encyclopedia of Life will help all of us better understand life on our planet.
The Encyclopaedia of Life project is in the process of collecting the data which will be stored on the internet including videos, descriptions, locations and behaviours. They are up to about 180,000 pages at the moment, with a target of around two million pages when complete. It uses a Wiki system which allows any enthusiast to upload information they have learned about a species.
