Summary

The Portal of Zoology is a collaborative project in which tools from the Internet and cartography will allow inhabitants, students, teachers, researchers, university students to contribute to the dissemination of photos, location and information about wildlife species found in Pernambuco. Since nature does not recognize administrative boundaries, it is possible to report on the location of species from anywhere on the planet! The main objective of the Portal of Zoology is to show how diverse our fauna is. And still unknown. And no one better to show us this diversity than people around the world that are curious and like to photograph nature and share their knowledge.
