Welcome to Virginia Wildlife Mapping!

Virginia Wildlife Mapping is a project of the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (formerly Department of Game & Inland Fisheries). We are Virginia's lead state agency for the conservation of Virginia's wildlife and wildlife habitats.

If you observe a rare species of Virginia wildlife, especially an amphibian or a reptile, and are able to photograph it or record its call (from a respectful and safe distance), please share your observation with us! For more information on this project and what constitutes a "rare species," please refer to the "About" section.

Virginia Wildlife Mapping

We are excited to begin using this new platform for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries' Wildlife Mapping data-base. We hope to continue collecting all of the species observations from our existing Wildlife Mappers as well as many new citizen scientists. We are emphasizing observations of reptiles and amphibians to be used in a new Virginia Herp Atlas. But please continue to report all of your wildlife observations.
