Rare Species Reporting Form
The following form is to be used to submit records of provincially rare species (i.e. those tracked by the NHIC)
from within Ontario. To determine if a species is tracked by the NHIC, refer to the
. A "Y" in the
"Track" column indicates that a species is considered rare in Ontario and is tracked by NHIC.
The NHIC receives the rare species data from projects such as the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas, the Ontario Odonata
Summary, and the Ontario Herpetofaunal Atlas. Users of this form are not required, therefore, to submit rare species
data if they have already been submitted to one of these projects.
- Please read the Species Report Guide before entering information.
- Fields with * are required. Other fields should be filled out if known.
- Complete one form per species per site per date. If multiple visits are made to the same site, please fill in
a separate form for each visit.
