Help make PhyloPic 2.0 happen!

We're raising funds to create a new, faster, more useful version of PhyloPic. Help us reach the goal by December 19!

Support the campaign and get these perks:

  • Your name on the site. FOREVER.
  • “Pocket Phylogenies” — wallet-sized cards that help explain commonly-asked questions about evolution
  • Signed prints
  • T-shirts
  • Custom artwork of whichever species you want!

If successfully funded, PhyloPic 2.0 will feature:

  • The ability to browse through all silhouettes in a particular group.
  • Filtering by license type.
  • Tools for building collections of silhouettes and auto-generation caption text.
  • An architecture ready for more features: automatic cladogram generation, metadata tagging, and more!


PhyloPic is made free largely through volunteer work (coding and illustration). However, there are some actual costs associated with running the web server. If you would like to help out, any amount is very much appreciated.
