Observations: Finding and Reviewing

To “View & Export Observations” that have been submitted and entered into the IDFG-IFWIS database, for Animals you can go to https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/species/observations/list, while for Plants you go to https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/species/observations/plants/list.  From this page you can begin filtering and querying the data to fit your need.  Filters currently included are by: Common Name, Scientific Name, Category [of species type], and Region.  An updated form will also include filters for Observer and Reporting Organization.  If you require a specific filter, that you believe will be useful by many, please let us know.

These filters should be fairly intuitive, but a helpful note is to remember to “Reset” the filter when you want to change your search criteria, otherwise, the filter will continue to narrow down on the search criteria that are already entered.  You may also increase the number of observations returned per page by changing the Items/page filter.
