Encyclopedia of Life

Just heard about this huge project, which is undertaking to document all species of life on Earth. Pretty cool idea. The first release of about 30 000 entries was just released. You can check it out here or read more about it here. It officially launches tomorrow and hopes to document all 1.8 million species of life, with it’s ultimate goal being to help in conservation efforts.
