Recent News A Community for Naturalists
August 2, 2017: With iNaturalist you can submit photos and locations of species you observe in nature, and other users can verify or help figure out what that creature in the photo is. The SKCDC, along with other organizations and scientists, can then use these observations to understand where organisms occur across the globe. You can also join our SKCDC and iMapInvasives projects!

Wild Species 2015 Report
July 4, 2017: Every five years, the National General Status Working Group produces a report on the status of wild species in Canada.

NatureServe Canada and Canadian Wildlife Service honored for Scientific and Technological Achievement
April 25, 2017: Following the assessment of the conservation statuses of almost 30,000 species across Canada for the 2015 Wild Species Report (now available for download from the Wild Species web site), NatureServe Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Service were awarded the Scientific and Technological Acheivement Award by NatureServe. The SKCDC was proud to be a part of this process. Details on the Saskatchewan species that have been reassessed as part of this project can be found here.
Plant Species by Ecoregion Lists Now Posted
April 7, 2017: Two excel spreadsheets have been added to our website: Tracked Vascular and Tracked Non-Vascular Species by Ecoregion. These lists are generated using the SKCDC tracked species occurrence records. Over time, we hope to incorporate more datasets to increase the information available, and also post similar lists for animals. The lists can be downloaded from our Species Lists page under the vascular and non-vascular plant sections.
