Doesn't make sense?!?!?! Well let us (by us we mean scientists) explain!

Scientists once estimated that over 100 million species of plants and animals roam the earth. With a number that high, many believed that there was no way to discover and name all of them before some went extinct.

Not so fast!

Recently, researchers have found that this may not be the case. With the increase in taxonomists, it is possible to name all of the world's unknown species?!?!

But how does this help??? We'll tell you how!!!
