Apparently the 1.8 million known species only represent 10% of those actually on our planet, that’s a lot unknown and yet to discover, classify and investigate.
Well now you can help out by donating an amount to an organisation called Biopat. A relatively small donation can allow for the correct taxonomical research as well as the important research into the conservation of the species.
Check out the current catalogue of species and see which you would like to sponsor.
How about a fly that’s been encased in amber for 15-20 million years?
There are live species too, flies, spiders, beetles, frogs, geckos, even orchids. The Brunton Chinese crab spider, the fastest spider known to man, I kinda like that.
