The answer to life and everything is … 8.7 million

That is how many species there are on the planet.

At least this is the best estimate we have, plus or minus one million.

Of these only 1.2 million have been described, most of which are of land lifeforms. This equates to 14% of land life and 9% of ocean life that we have a name for.

We really know very little about ourselves and our planet.
