The Michigan Department of Natural Resources uses the iNaturalist platform to collect citizen science data on wildlife species from the public. Using iNaturalist is also a great way to get answers on species identification questions you might have. As an example, "What kind of snake is this?" Use the iNaturalist app to snap a picture and upload it along with location information. Get started today by submitting an observation from your computer, or by installing the app on your phone with one of the links below. If you have an urgent wildlife need, please call the Wildlife Division at 517-284-9453.
