Help us learn more about reptiles at risk in British Columbia by reporting your sightings!
We are interested in sightings of both live and dead reptiles. While unfortunate, road-killed reptiles can provide valuable information about distribution and abundance.
To report a sighting, click on the link below:
BC Ministry of Environment Wildlife Sighting Form
To complete the Wildlife Sighting Form, you'll need the following information:
The Sightings Form requires species and sub-species codes. Just use the search button (outlined in a red circle below) to find the code you need - if you're not sure of the species or sub-species, indicate that in the comments section! The same symbol is used throughout the form to allow you to choose codes for different sections of the form.
If you have a rattlesnake on your property and you are concerned it may harm you or your family, call the Conservation Officer 24 hour Wildlife Sightings hotline:
The operators of the hotline have a variety of resources they can use to advise and help you.
If you come across an injured or trapped reptile, you can locate the nearest Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre at the following site:
