Have you seen an unusual animal or plant in the San Juan Islands? Has your cat left you a curious gift? We want to hear from you! Photographs, with notes on the date and place of your find, are indispensable for identification of your discovery. If your find is a dead animal, please freeze it in a plastic bag marked with the date and location, then send us an e-mail (email@example.com); we may arrange with you to pick it up. Small mammals such as bats, shrews, squirrels, weasels, mice or voles are always welcome, as are any reptiles (lizards, snakes, turtles) or salamanders. You can also simply drop it off at our office in Lopez Village, or at the front desk at Friday Habor Labs.
Living animals or plants should not be disturbed or collected; please take a picture instead and report them to us, so that we can make a site visit Injured or sick animals can be brought to Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on San Juan Island (360-378-5000). Injured or dead marine mammals such as seals should be reported to the Marine Mammal Stranding Network (800-562-8832).
