WhiskerWiki was created in 2023 by Laura Steger and Rick Overson to aid field biologists, specimen preparators, students, and mammal enthusiasts in identification of the shrews and small rodents in the USA. The impetus to build this site is to remove the financial barriers that may prevent some folks from pursuing an education, job opportunity, or stumbling down a path of curiosity in the most fundamental aspects of mammalogy: taxonomy (what is it and what does it look like) and biogeography (where is it).
