The company 'Digital Life' has an ambitious goal of keeping track of every single living animal via 3D digital archives.

The company uses 3D scans in order to preserve all of the various species of animals and although its goal is ambitious, it believes in the importance of keeping a record of the planet's biodiversity. With so many species going extinct or predicted to go extinct in the coming years due to climate change, it is becoming increasingly important to create realistic digital archives of the animals that currently exist today. The company expects that the project will take several lifetimes but is committed to ensuring that the Earth's history is preserved in this unique, interactive way.

The Digital Life project has a unique goal that could be crucial in the future for both creative and educational purposes.
