Have you been out in the forest and seen an animal with young? Did you see a butterfly emergence during a river lime? Were you on the coast and saw migrant shorebirds? Have you seen animal tracks or bones on a hike? Are you in Trinidad and Tobago for a vacation and want to report a wildlife sighting? Share your sightings from locations that you don't visit regularly. How?
Many of us visit locations only once or infrequently, such as for weekends, holidays or work. Often, during these visits, we observe interesting nature that we don’t see regularly. These species tend to be hard to observe because of the habitats they live in, and they are shy such as deer or ocelot or rare, like our endemic pawi or golden tree-frog or migrants, like peregrine falcons or American redstarts. These sightings can be very special moments and often remain in our memory for years.
Where are they?
We want you to share sightings and animals signs on Bush Maco TT so that we can build up a 'distribution record' of where these animals and plants live. This information will help us monitor and better understand how to protect these less common species. If you all provide data on these species we will be able to know where to direct our research and resources.
