CNDDB recently celebrated the creation of our 100,000th element occurrence! For those of you who don’t know, element occurrences are summaries of all we know about a species in an area. An element occurrence could be a single detection, or a summary of 100 years’ worth of data.
While this milestone could not be achieved without the dedicated staff who have sifted through data and organized it all, we need to give the real credit where it is due. To all our contributors, thank you! The CNDDB is a testament to your passion and dogged efforts to protect California’s wild species.
We will continue to collect, aggregate, and distribute rare species data that biologists all over California have contributed to assist in better conservation and species management. Join our effort by submitting your detections of rare species through our Online Field Survey Form. Let’s reach that next milestone together!
