|This is a WikiProject, an area for focused collaboration among Wikipedians. New participants are welcome; please feel free to participate!|
Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to animals. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the Task list. To join the project, add your username here.
This WikiProject aims primarily to describe, create and maintain articles on all animals, that is, all species belonging to the kingdom Animalia. This project's scope also includes zoologists and zoology-related articles.
This is the WikiProject Animals monthly task list. If you finish a task, feel free to remove it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Animals/Monthly.

Common (vernacular) names are not capitalised (except where proper names appear).
For articles where a common name is used for the article title, the consensus way to write the combination of common name plus scientific name in the lead is (per this discussion):
Namely, bold common name followed by unbolded italic scientific name in parentheses.
