Scientists are starting an effort to document the entire known world’s living creatures. The effort is thought to take about 10 years. Every living thing will have it’s own page where others from the scientific community could edit and constantly update information. This new project would also help expedite the process of documenting newly discovered species. All this is possible due to 12.5 million dollars in grants from various organizations.
