The knowledge portal will include information on more than 4,000 species, covering topics such as evolution, habitat, behavior, ontology, conservation status and more. Continuously updated, the image-rich content will provide an educational experience, where users will not only find answers to specific questions, but will also have the opportunity to explore, discover, and learn, the announcement states.


Other features include:

* Up-to-date information written and reviewed by expert’s from around the world
