Participate in Wildlife Watch and let us know about the wildlife and plants you observe where you live!  Wildlife Watch is a national, nature watching program created for people of all ages.

Visit Wildlife Watch before and after your adventures in nature.  Before you head outside, click your state on the dropdown list below.  Review all the possible species and natural phenomena you might observe.  After you return indoors, come back to Wildlife Watch and report the data online.

It’s simple, fun and you’ll learn a lot about the wildlife that exists in yourneighborhood.  Plus you’ll be helping Wildlife Watch track the health and behavior of wildlife and plant species nationwide.

There are other fun ways to participate in Wildlife Watch:

- Share Your Wildlife Stories online.  We want to hear about your experiences
   in nature.

- Join our Flickr group and post animal and plant pictures.  First timers and
   professionals welcome!

Don’t forget to invite your friends and family to participate.  As the seasons change, so do the species on Wildlife Watch, so there are new things to see and observe all year-round!
