🧬DNA Project Report | Jan 2020
We are back!! Our last post was from the account @bioportal.steem: "SBioP Project Report | Week-2".
Since then, we have changed our official account along with many other things.
In this post, we wish to describe the changes and progress made in the month of January.
First of all, it will be nice to re-introduce ourselves...!
1. Introducing: Project DNA.DNA stands for "Densifying Nature-Appreciation".
To help people appreciate nature in its true sense. When we say "nature", we mean the biological, the physical and the one yet to be seen!!
We are interested in trying to catalogue the biodiversity on our planet, and in re-igniting the fire in the minds of people...the fire of the desire to explore, the yearning to understand their surroundings, and to realize their duties towards our planet, humanity and towards our other biological / intelligent friends (on and beyond our planet!).

With this much said, we'll move ahead to our progress this month...
2. How far we traveled this month!?Okay, as we describe where we currently stand, it is essential to understand and keep in mind that we are hardly a month old...that should give you some sort of a perspective...
a) Our Curation Efforts...Curation is an effort which is very important for us simply because this way we are able to help and appreciate people's work and also generate funds for our own working...
The curation team curated

The best posts we found were also recommended for support by @c-squared.
Here is a list of those:
b) Biodiversity Catalogue...
We have just started working on this part, so we are still in the process of encouraging people to join in...
Moreover, since this process can only be done on the Discord server so, the number of people joining our server really matters!
Nevertheless, we would like to appreciate @lourdeshd6 for her following classification of a damselfly she posted about:

c) We Are Opening Up to Amateur Astronomy!
Any astronomers here!?
As we already mentioned, we must open up our imagination to the world beyond, Earth is not the only place to explore, there is a huge world waiting to be explored beyond the boundaries of even our imagination, so why not appreciate the beauty of the "Nature Beyond Our Planet?!".
We know it sounds a bit odd at the moment, but never-the-less, we invite amateur astronomers to join us!! Astronomy is always exciting, isn't it?!
The Road Ahead...
1. Our Road To Success: An Active and Enthusiastic CommunityWe think we can only stay alive by allowing the community to participate extensively in our project. After all, this project is "By The People, For The People" We really look forward to interacting with as many people as we can!
Thanks for sparing your valuable time!
