WANT TO BE SUPPORTING DISCOVER LIFE IN AMERICA and BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH?

THEN NAME A SPECIES!

*The NEW SPECIES will be a Small Animal!
**It Will have a VALID SCIENTIFIC NAME!
***Its Name Will be the One YOU SUPPLY!
The Names of Species Survive in PERPETUITY!
________________________________________
  

WHAT NAME CAN I USE?
The personal name you provide will be used as the specific (SPECIES) name of the NEW SPECIES of animal the taxonomic expert describes and names.
WHO and WHAT are TAXONOMISTS?
Taxonomists are biologists who classify, describe and name these new species following technical requirements prescribed in International Codes of Nomenclature.

 

Their descriptions and names of the new species are published in scientific journals following appropriate peer reviews and editorial approval. The entire process requires funding support. Page charges alone to publish the names and descriptions of new species often exceed $700! The names of species, however, survive in perpetuity!

WHAT KINDS of ANIMALS are NEW TO SCIENCE and Would be Given the NAME I WANT?
Most of the NEW SPECIES of animals being discovered today are SMALL and RARE!


Many UNKNOWN SPECIES are becoming EXTINCT before they’ve been discovered as a result of HABITAT DESTRUCTION! The PERSONAL NAME YOU PROVIDE will be used for one of these SMALL, RARE ANIMALS!
________________________________________

The Species available to name changes all the time.  Please inquire if you have questions.

  • HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE MY NAME GETS PUBLISHED?

PLEASE INQUIRE IF YOU HAVE SPECIFIC TIME-FRAMES From time of submittal till the PUBLICATION OF THE NAME!
