The ALL Species Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the complete inventory of all species of life on Earth within the next 25 years – a human generation.

To describe and classify all of the surviving species of the world deserves to be one of the great scientific goals of the new century.

In applied science, this completion of the Linnaean enterprise is needed for effective conservation practices, and for impact studies of environmental change.

In basic science, it is a key element in the maturing of ecology, including the grasp of ecosystem functioning and of evolutionary biology. It also offers an unsurpassable adventure: the exploration of a little-known planet.
