link DQA captive/cultivated to https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/help#captive

Platform(s), such as mobile, website, API, other: Website (not sure how this would be possible on mobile)

URLs (aka web addresses) of any pages, if relevant: Any observation page

Description of need:
Many forum posts have covered new users not understanding captive/cultivated vs wild. It’s so common it’s in the Frequent Responses page at https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/responses#notwild . This page tells users HOW to use the DQA setting, but not when to use it. iNat’s captive/cultivated definition (the individual’s origin for plants, the individual’s current status for animals) is on a separate page, the Help page at https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/help#captive .

Feature request details:
It might be helpful if the DQA itself had a link to all the examples on the help page.

That first mockup looks great to me, and I think this would is a much-needed feature.
