NPSpecies Checklists

Our natural resource specialists keep track of animal and plant species within the park. They are documented within a database called NPSpecies. If you'd like to view or print out a checklist of species, please follow these directions:

  • NPSpecies is best viewed in Internet Explorer.
  • Open NPSpecies (http://irma.nps.gov/NPSpecies/)
  • Choose Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve from the drop-down list and click "Go".
  • Choose the category of species you'd like to see. (For example, choose "Mammals" to see a mammals checklist.) Then click the "Search" button.
  • Finally, click the "Report/Pdf" button.
  • Now you can either view the species checklist or print it out!
