Animal Planet: Cataloging the world around us

I don’t write much about ecology here, though it is a topic I am very interested in, but two sites are worth noting–the All Species Foundation, a project that was going great guns for a while and then had to slow down because of funding issues, and the ARKIVE, an Archive for Endangered Species created by The WildScreen Trust in Bristol, England http://www.arkive.org/ .
