"This site is a project of the University of California Museum of Paleontology and is the result of collaboration among a diverse group of scientists, teachers, designers, and web experts.
Science relies on testing ideas with evidence gathered from the natural world. This website will help you learn more about science as a process of learning about the natural world and access the parts of science that affect your life."

Is Earth on the verge of a 6th Mass Extinction? 
   Depressing news about the status of our animal kingdom.
Humans have an extremely negative impact on the environment, this interactive slideshow (see link below) shows us what is happening and what needs to be done to fix it.  Sad as it may be, we need to know what is happening and what we can do to fix it.
