Endangered, Threatened & Rare Animals of South Dakota


Report Rare Species Sightings

If you think you have seen an endangered, threatened or rare animal, there are several things to do:

  1. Do not disturb the animal in any way.

  2. Document your observation, with a camera, if possible.

  3. Record the date, time and location (as detailed as possible) of the sighting. Include any information about the sighting you think might be important (description, number of animals, behavior, etc.).

  4. Report your finding to one of these agencies. (Such information will help us more accurately describe species distributions in future publications.)
