Survey Protocols

Information on survey protocols can be found on the Government of Saskatchewan Wildlife Research and Projects page. Survey protocols provide instruction and guidance for the preferred methods of carrying out and reporting on wildlife species in Saskatchewan. Please note that new protocols are currently under development and the website is being updated on a live basis, so check back prior to your project to ensure you have the latest information. Survey protocols can be downloaded from the Government of Saskatchewan Publication Centre.

Loadforms

Standardized loadforms for entering wildlife species observations are available from the Government of Saskatchewan Wildlife Research and Projects page. Please check back prior to your project to ensure you have the latest version.

Data and reports submitted through the research permit process should be directed to ENV.researchpermit@gov.sk.ca. This includes surveys where a permit is not required but notification is requested. See the Government of Saskatchewan Wildlife Research and Projects page for details. Please note that this data will be forwarded to the SKCDC, and therefore you only have to submit your data once.

If you are not following the terms of a permit and would like to submit data to the SKCDC, these loadforms may be used to submit data to us. Please visit our page on submitting observations for more details.
