The Natural Heritage Database tracks all threatened and endangered species within the state of Illinois. Species currently listed as threatened and endangered are listed on the Endangered Species Protection Board
website We welcome and encourage anyone to report their observations of listed species. For birds, the database records only evidence of breeding i.e. nests.
The last field is for attachments. You can only attach one document (e.g. pdf, photographs, illustrations, shape files). Therefore, you may want to combine files, or send additional files to DNR.NHDatabase@illinois.gov
with your name. We will include the attachments with your online submittal.
