Become a Fish and Wildlife Citizen Scientist
Help expand our knowledge of what is happening with Florida's fish and wildlife by getting involved as a citizen scientist. There are plenty of opportunities to help out and you are not required to be a biologist or have special training.

The information you provide is valuable, giving our staff an enhanced, up-to-date picture of the status of Florida's fish and wildlife and it can also be fun and educational for you. Find out where to report sightings of coastal species such as right whales or mink, or how to participate in surveys, by viewing the Sightings, Surveys and Hotlines links on the citizen scientist page.

FWC Facts:
Our bass fisheries provide significant value to our state. Ensuring healthy lakes and rivers benefits many species of fish and wildlife as well as trophy fisheries.
