Park Species Lists
NPSpecies is the NPS web-based tool for documenting the occurrence and status of species in national parks. NPSpecies gives parks, scientists and our visitors a way to build, manage, maintain, and share park species lists.
NPSpecies is always a work in progress. Lists continue to change and improve as we learn more about species in parks. Some species categories such as birds or mammals have had extensive research done and their information in NPSpecies is relatively stable. Other categories such as invertebrates or non-vascular plants are less well known, and information in NPSpecies may be missing or in the early stages of development.
