Name a Species

Name a Species


Cosberella lamaralexanderi

Every year researchers discover many new species of life here in the smokies. The cost to name one of DLIA's newly discovered creatures ranges from $2,500 to $10,000. Donors who name a species will receive a print of their named organism, as well as a copy of the scientific publication in which it is first described. The species naming process typically takes a year or longer to complete, as the scientific process of careful research, paper submission, and review for publication is very involved.

Questions? Interested in naming a species? DLIA is happy to help. Call us at (865) 430-4757 or email todd@dlia.org.

Thank you for a great 2014 ATBI Conference

Thank you to all who participated in, and attended our annual ATBI Conference of March 2014. We believe it was very profitable: not only for the attendees in general, but for the gathering and collaboration of experts in the field of conservation biology. We were also delighted and enthused by the presence and presentations of our keynote speaker, bat conservationist and author, Dr. Merlin Tuttle.

Thank you Dr. Tuttle!
