How to Use  About the Data

Nature Explorer currently contains information on birds, reptiles, amphibians, rare animals, rare plants, and significant natural communities.

The search results are not a definitive statement about the presence or absence of all plants and animals, including rare or state-listed species, or of all significant natural communities. The DEC and partners will continue to expand this information over time.
