Learning to identify and document wildlife species is a great way to appreciate the character and quality of your land, and reporting wildlife also helps organizations characterize and steward the larger landscape.
The Land Between tracks species across the region in order to understand the functions and conditions of the ecotone. This information then helps us to prioritize efforts and share the news. Sensitive data is shared only with your consent
A variety of time-honored wildlife monitoring programs across Ontario also benefit from submissions and volunteer participation.
