Introducing Newfoundland and Labrador's Nature Tracker

NLNature ( www.nlnature.com ) is an online atlas of wildlife in Newfoundland and Labrador based on observations by residents and tourists. We welcome any sighting of plants, animals, and other things (e.g., interesting rocks, landmarks) in Newfoundland and Labrador. Contributing to NLNature is easy, fun and valuable for science!

NLNature is part of an on-going research at Memorial University's Faculty of Business Administration and Department of Biology. The sightings data is used to monitor local wildlife, inform conservation policy, protect endangered species, educate students & public about local natural history as well as to develop innovative approaches to information modeling, information management and information systems development.

The data can also be used as part of trends monitoring, to detect unusual species occurrences, and to detect novel findings of species in areas where they have previously not been observed. These data supplied by the public will complement data collected by university and government researchers.
