MADISON - Each spring, Department of Natural Resources biologists and volunteers take to the field and complete surveys in order to learn more about Wisconsin's wildlife species.

Spring and summer surveys take place during all hours on designated roadside routes. Survey procedures may require biologists to make frequent stops for short, pre-determined periods of time, and motorists are reminded to be aware these ongoing survey efforts.

"Biologists and volunteers have worked together to complete annual roadside surveys, where they listen and record wildlife, since the 1960s," said Brian Dhuey, wildlife population and harvest assessment specialist. "These survey techniques are a tried and true way to take stock of wildlife throughout Wisconsin."

Survey results can be found online, and those interested in learning more about Wisconsin's wildlife species are encouraged to view these valuable data. Department staff would like to thank survey volunteers for their continued dedication to working closely in partnership with DNR and other key stakeholders.
