Lizard Mapping Project


Lizard Mapping Project

Many lizards are little studied, and basic ecological information is lacking including where they occur. In 2012, a national effort has been launched to compile new and existing locality data for lizards. You can participate in this effort by submitting lizard localities on our forms (available below) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please note that there are both required and optional data elements on these forms. We would like to thank you in advance for your efforts to fill out the required data elements (species identification, date of observation, location, your name and contact information), and to provide a digital photo when possible.

If you have many sightings to report, you will probably want to use the Microsoft Excel form.

If you have individual or a few sightings to report, or don't have access to Microsoft software, you may wish to use our Fillable PDF form, which can be filled out for each sighting, saved under a new name, and emailed back to us.

If you want to record data in the field, or prefer to mail us hardcopy, you may want the Hardcopy PDF form.

In any case, if you don't have a GPS and need to look up coordinates for your sighting on Google Earth (which you can download for free), you can either hover the 'hand' tool over the site and write down the coordinates, or use the pushpin marker tool to mark and label the spot for future reference.
