Submitting Data

The data in ONHI's databases are collated from a number of sources. These include museum and herbarium specimens, published literature accounts, field surveys conducted by ONHI and affiliated biologists, and data submissions from various stakeholders.

If you have observation data you would like to share with ONHI for inclusion in one of our databases, please use our online submission form.  Upon submission, one of ONHI biologists will review the information and determine whether it is appropriate for our database. In particular, we seek information related to tracked plant and animal species (i.e. those species of conservation concern).  Please search our list of Species of Concern (our "tracking list") to determine if your observation is appropriate for submission.  Alternatively, please contact one of our biologists.
