Chatham Rare Species Pocket Guide
Thanks to UNC-Chapel Hill student Melissa Auton for creating a laminated color pocket guide to some of the rare species found in Chatham County. Funding for printing and laminating the pocket guide was provided by an Endangered Species Day Grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Disturbance or removal of rare species is illegal. Please do not trespass on private property. Information on Wildlife regulations is available in the free publication, North Carolina Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest available online from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission at NCWildlife.org . More information about the rare species in this pocket guide, and additional rare species found in Chatham County, is available in the Comprehensive Conservation Plan by the Chatham Conservation Partnership. The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program tracks occurrences of rare species. To submit your observations of rare plants and animals to the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program, go to their web site and complete the Rare Plant Survey Form or the Rare Animal Survey Form available at this link NCNHP.org Submitting photographs along with the forms is helpful in assisting with identification.
