Was in hopes the map was ready now. Will have to wait and see, can't rush 136 years.

the more diversity we have the healthier our planet, unfortunaely many are going extinct before they can even be discovered!

It's quite ironic that we probably have lost some biodiversity since Wallace's time. I hope humans will learn to appreciate the biodiversity of this planet before we lose too much more.
