Please only post spottings to the mission that are appropriate to the mission guidelines. Only spottings that are captured within a specifically created habitat to encourage wildlife habitation should be posted to the mission. The purpose of this mission is to gather and compile an extensive list of flora and fauna that everyone is encouraging to come live within the habitats you are creating. No matter the size of the area (could be as little as a container garden or as large as several acres). If you are planting and cultivating and encouraging animals and plants to live within the habitat you have created please add them to the mission. There is a plethora of plant and animal species across the Globe. This is a place to showcase them, and educate others from various regions across the globe about these species, and their importance to the ecosystem. By creating backyard habitats and encouraging plant and animals alike to come and visit and take up residence we are ensuring a very strong and stable environment for the future.
