Pan-species Listing

The aim of Pan-species listing is to list and record species from all taxonomic groups, thus improving knowledge and understanding of the less popular groups of wildlife. Many people’s lists will naturally show a bias towards the most popular groups: Birds, Plants and Moths, however those near the top of the leaderboard usually have a vast knowledge of the less popular groups (E.G. David Gibbs who has seen over 3,000 flies!).

My lifetime aim is to see 10,000 species in the UK, which is a little way away at the moment. At the end of 2017, my overall total was 4175 species. My goal for 2018 is to reach an overall total of 5000! My current group totals and ranking can be seen here:
