Critter counting

I am convinced I will never learn about all the animals. No matter how many nature docs I watch, there will always be some critter that I have never seen or heard of before. The supply seems to be infinite.

Tragically, of course, the supply is not at all infinite, and we’re losing species fast: approximately 10-100 per day. See: “Global Extinction Rates: Why Do Estimates Vary So Wildly?
