Eyes in the field
As you are out enjoying Michigan's wealth of wildlife, we encourage you to share your observations of certain species: cougar, eastern Massasauga, moose, wild turkey, lynx and more, in addition to diseased wildlife.
Keep Michigan's wildlife wild
Each spring and summer, we are flooded with calls as people across the state run into a common dilemma – they have come across a baby animal and desperately want to help. If you happen to find a fawn or other baby animal, please leave it in the wild! Taking an animal from the wild is not only illegal, it is dangerous.
