    I cannot post enough [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] 's to even begin to describe my shock.
    HOLY MACKEREL!!!!
    my tiny little brain cannot comprehend those numbers...
    can any math freak here (lol) tell us how many species there have been in this world? I'm too shocked to even try :P
    I think I'm gonna cry :P
    note that does NOT include subspecies, varieties, etc...

    well move the decimal over to the right 4 times... in other words multiply the number of species you got now (.1%) by 1000 (will make it 100%) so if there are 50 million species alive now (.1%) there were once 50,000 million species (100%)

    you just found that out? the # species today are a very small fraction of ones there once were.
    that makes no logic

    If i were you i'd go something more general, maybe something to help a whole community like a rainforest or a region. It would be more significant in the end, and will gain interest in future generations.

    You know these people are nuts about conservation when the subtitles 'The State of Our Bacteria', 'The State of Our Protozoans' and 'The State of Our Algae' are the very first subtitles after the main heading [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Endangerd species recovery plans need several dozens of workers atleast to caarry them out, pluuat captive breeding and habitat modifications. And its not exactly like i have a narrow range of possible species that would need help, because theres alot.
    that makes no logic
