Site about nuptial flight

Hello.
I'm web developer and I very like to keep ants. I decided to combine my work and hobby.
So, I started to create the site about ants. This one about nuptial flight of ants.
Sorry for my bad English, I’m from Ukraine :)

I started to keep ants 6 month ago..In spring I wanted to catch queens and I searched schedules of flight. But I couldn't search anything, except themes in forums and simple tables of “Excel”. And I decided to create some site, where will be all things, that I want.

Now, I will write about features of my site:
1) Table of nuptial flight.
2) Filter of showing ants and database of continents and countries. You can select one and there would be ants from this continent. Or you can select separate countries to watching species from them
3) In side panel you would see information for actual flights. There will be line, where you could see time span of flight and point, that show to you nowaday date

There some screenshots from site:

I didn't have back-end developer (who can create server and remote database for site) and there were some problems with addition new items for my local database.
Maybe there are back-end developers who want to help me with creating exciting application for antkeepers. Or, I will complete this site for my own.

Now, this site only in my computer. I not yet bought hosting.

What are you thinking about this project ? Is it really a good idea ?
You can suggest something to improve the site.

I have a lot of ideas, but I need more free time and your help :)

I don't know, how to send PM in this forum. If you want to help me, please, send PM to me :)
Or add my skype - petrofutbolist
Or my facebook - https://www.facebook.com/petro.gorchak

I need only one back-end developer. Also, I need somebody, who would help me for finding information about ant species and adding that in database. Now, I use JSON file and add ants in there.

Hi.
In free time I continued to make site.

What about new features:
1) On the calendar, the ants are now sorted by the time of nuptial flight.
2) You can change filter - by the time of flight or by name.
3) I added button, that delete all countries. It is convenient, when you want to select several countries. First - delete all countries, second - select one, that you need.
4) Very important thing ! Now, browser remember your choice and when you refresh page, you will see you selected countries. You don't need to select your country every time. It's very useful.

After that I will fill the database of ants.

In future, I want to create pages of species. Also, I'm going to make functionality for ant keepers. It will be seperate page, where you can find species by the features of keeping and you can read describe of every species (hibernation, keeping level, mobility, reproduction).
I make this site alone and this is difficult and take a long time. But I hope, that it will be finished.
