Project: Species ID Card


Author an ID Card!

Did you find a native or invasive species in the field and no species ID card to help identify it? You can make and share your own ID card!

Here's how

1. Grab a Species ID Card to check out the type of information that goes on these cards

  • What written evidence helps you identify the species?
  • What photo evidence helps you identify the species?

2. Describe the key features of YOUR species. Focus on the characteristics that help you tell it apart from similar-looking species. To help you think about the key features, use this preview of the Google Form you'll fill out next.

3. Take or find photos of your species:

4. Enter your information into our Google Form: Build a Vital Signs Species ID Card.


Our turn:

1. We'll turn your information into a new species card.

2. We'll send it to a Species Expert to review .

3. We'll post it to our Species Card page.

4. We'll let you know when it's up on the site!
