The Zurqui All-Diptera Biodiversity Inventory (ZADBI), a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to estimate fly biodiversity within a Costa Rican cloud forest, will contribute content and educational resources to EOL. This effort is based on an international collaboration of fly experts, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the Costa Rican Instituto Nacional de Biodiversidad (INBio). INBio is also an EOL Content Partner.

The project anticipates the discovery of at least 3,000 species, most of which will be new. View pictures from the field:
