Fantastic webGIS. To explore the full home range of a particular species, search by common or scientific name and then select a layer with an “expert range map” icon, which looks like an avant-garde, neon green dove (the UI still needs a little work).

Their data seems limited to animals at the current time, but I’m hoping they’ll add plants soon.
