I was looking for a site where I could ask questions about wildlife, such as species identification. As far as I can see, such site is not yet available. If I were to propose a new site for this, should it be under recreation, science, or others?

Species identification questions are on-topic on Biology.SE. Please see this Meta.Biology post for more details.

... in short we don't seem to have a clear consensus. However, as long as the question includes enough detail and has a biological basis then I personally would say that it's worth posting

  • Do you mind quoting the relevant parts which suggest that questions of this kind are on-topic there?

    @adipro Apologies, I had the wrong Meta post, I found the slightly more definitive one. In reality, there's still no consensus, but there are quite a few (88) identification questions that have been successful

Sites for subjects like ornithology, entomology, herpetology, etc would be proposed in the 'science' category.
