The CNDDB accepts data on rare species in a number of formats. The method of submission will likely depend on the amount of data that was collected, the format the data was collected in, and the type of project being carried out. For all data submissions, the more information that is provided to the CNDDB on population size, site condition, threats, etc., the better the CNDDB can assign an accurate occurrence rank to the site. The occurrence rank is then taken into consideration when determining rarity status and when prioritizing sites for conservation purposes.
Below are the most common ways data is submitted to the CNDDB. The preferred method of data submission for animal detections is the CNDDB Online Field Survey Form. If you are unclear as to how to submit your data, please contact the CNDDB and we can work with you to determine the best way to submit your data.
